an instant - what is that?
a minute:  longer than an hour when pulse is raging
an hour:  too short with those you love
a day:   a pebble in the Cosmos

time eludes, races, crawls, stops
sleepless nights, anxious waiting, a labored breath
applause ends, tears dry, memories fade
what color is time?

eyes close, shoulders fall, tension subsides
darkness comes, a welcome friend
the scent of lavender, the sweet light of day
so grateful just to be.
