In a moment of time
It was a period when soul and mind became united
A twist of fortune was caught in the moment of time
When the luck turns into grace and favor is recovered,
We were like them who lay in dreams of the sublime.
Peace unites our soul with the fantasies of the mind
Secure in sleep the joy reap came again frequently
In opportunities, resources came by foe and friend
Vision gathered at night and at dawn stood spiritually.
People saw them amassing a host surrounding you
In your charms the beauty was warm and refreshing,
And your company became something more renew
Transformed into the glow of a heavenly blessing.
For good measure fate had given other advantages
To those ill winds that many people misunderstood,
Repair the shape in time and bring new privileges
To the transformed heart in which fear had stood.
And shows that faith is more than a streak of luck,
Passing our way with the concept of some rewards
The hope we once wore was lost in a beaten track
But in the moment of time came the best awards.
