Moments come and moments go
Throughout our lives.
Sometimes they are delightful
Filling you with such joy.
Sometimes they can be special and inspiring
That you’ll hold forever close to your heart.
But sometimes they can be full of drama and tragedy
That will effect and change us forever…
A bit like hearing the echoing sound
Of footsteps fading away from you
From behind a closed door
As you try to mask your reaction
Until you are alone in your thoughts
To face the consequences…
Where the intensity hits
Of just how profoundly
It’s affected you
And that there is nothing
You can do to change it…
