The Treasure of a Moment in Time
There is a vast wealth of waiting in this world.
Don’t let me waste it, impatient and bored
or lost in trivial thought.
If you give me the treasure
of a moment in time,
while I wait for water to boil,
wait in a car for a friend
or wait in line at a store –
let me spend that moment
alone with you again.
Let me close my eyes and soar
into the sunrise of your smile.
Let me lose myself in the love songs
of your presence within.
Let me feel your dazzling light
dancing inside my cells.
Let this be the pleasure I find –
if you give me the treasure
of a moment in time
from my vast wealth
of waiting in this world.
