A dew drop of time that can hold an eternity within
That fleeting instant when bonds of a lifetime may begin;
Powerful enough to create memories to cherish
Yet so ethereal – in a flash they vanish.
Moments of laughter and sorrow, moments of fear and fun;
images from a reel like a dream well-spun.
It only takes a moment to trust and another to hope,
One fills you with warmth and the other helps you cope.
Capture it in a picture, or better still – hold it in your heart
But only the ones that in your smile put back the spark.
These building blocks of life, if filled with love and care
are ours to treasure, more precious than gems rarest of rare.
Occasionally an unkind moment may cross your path,
Best to let it gently pass rather than give in to wrath.
Moments of compassion more important than being right,
Moments of letting grudges go better than holding on to them tight.
Too tiny to measure, delicate as a snowflake
Each one is unique, there is no second take;
Every moment well-lived creates an impact so profound,
Can make your spirits soar and spread positivity all around.
