Those Special Moments


If only we could keep
those moments from slippin' away,
grab hold of them and cherish them
and try to make them stay.

But moments like those so often
are hard to hold onto.
They slip right through your fingers
no matter what you do.

You can think about it, talk about it
and remember it for a while.
Then as time keeps rushing away
what's left is just a smile.

The smile that brings those moments back
as if they were happening now.
And those moments that happened long ago
come alive somehow.

And you realize just a glimpse of them
awakens how you feel.
It takes you back to those moments
that time can never steal.

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
