These Moments

We live for these moments caught in between
Starry sky and muddy earth,
Where souls roam and lovers dance to tunes that sound in their hearts.
We sit and stand and prance about
With our hearts on our sleeves and nothing in our heads.
We live for these moments where souls intertwine,
Where we drink ourselves drunk on laughter and wine,
Where we live for the moment and leap without looking,
When we jump off cliffs and fall from the sky–
We live for these moments where we are truly alive:
Where we are unstoppable, incredible,
These moments and memories that will never die.

We live for these moments caught in between
Words and worlds, seen and unseen–
Things real, things fake, things we borrow, buy, or make.
We live for these moments fragile and pure,
These moments that change us, break us, make us unsure.
These moments where we find, lose, reclaim ourselves, our lives,
Our lovers, our husbands, our wives–
People and places caught on this plane,
That teach us lessons about love, joy, anger, and pain.
We live for these moments, the good and the bad,
Because without moments, what would we have?
Life would be but one long line,
No moments to break it, no intervention divine.
And all those moments that we never had
Would never be able to make us happy, angry, strong, or sad.
We live for these moments, the miracles unseen and unsought,
Things you cannot make; the moments that cannot be bought.

We live for these moments caught in between
Ocean blue and forest green,
Spirit soaring and mind abuzz
With questions, answers, worries, and wonders about life and love.
About one another, our fellow vessels of star-dust and empty space,
About the cosmos and how it aligns,
About Angels, and God, and curiosities divine–
We live for these moments outside of ourselves,
When we can take a step back and look at life like it’s on a shelf.
These moments, they make us, just as we make them,
So stop, breathe, and let the moment in.
