Words: Constancia

Give me a moment
to capture each moment
They’re coming too fast
and erased in an instant
Take only memories
they say
smell the roses
they say
take your chances
they say
life’s for living
But long after scent
has escaped
dispersed
diluted
Long after life
has re-written all records
I can’t remember
How she was in that instant
My little girl
Grown and gone
in a snapshot
Please give me a moment
to capture each moment

[for Joanne Malahias]
