one moment

more perfect than
any other

your heart races
trembling slightly
in anticipation
just before
your lips meet and
when they do
a thousand thoughts
a million love songs
flash at once
and for one
tiny instant
one sliver
of a section
of a second...
you know what
forever is

and all too soon
the moment is gone

and you know that
there will be other

but none will
echo the eternity
of that one moment

(forever in a moment, 2000)
