A Long Moment

Heart goes pitter-patter ...
You wonder what's the matter
And then you realize the sweat
Is pouring out from that lost bet

For within your soul and mind
You're overcome - almost blind
For your love is greater than the sky
And your body trembles as the lie

Seeps through all of your inner self
As your mind wants to go hide on a shelf
For the words uttered sounded so true
... Now they're just moments past so blue

For their color changed from a fiery flame
The one they were when she said your name
And promised you would hear her voice say
"I love you" ... simply ... and on this very day ...

But the moment's now come and gone ...
Leaving you to write your hollow song ...
For your love ... has been reawakened
Only to find your heart - now shakened ...

- Tristram
