It happens in a moment sometimes,
That change in your life you procure,
May not happen during your prime
That moment you forever savour.
A flash in your mind as a spell
As if the world was crystal clear.
To no one else can you sell
How a notion like this could appear.
For life is a series of moments,
Some good, some bad, equal measure.
As the bad you must not lament,
Embrace good as your personal treasure.
These spellbinding moments are few
To cherish, remember, embrace,
The ones where your confidence grew
Emblazoned all over your face.
It might be that life changing career
Some will say it was just down to fate!
Whatever the thought that did steer
Matters not, you did not hesitate.
• influenced by the line ‘it happens in a moment sometimes’ in the film Spellbound staring Gregory Peck.
