For a moment

I felt you in my hands again

But you slipped away

like the wind, like the sand, like water

For a moment, when I heard your voice again

I felt as if I heard silence after all these years of noise

As if I was listening to the real me, reflected in your calming self

For a moment when I felt you close again

I felt a surge of happiness which I had forgotten to exist

I felt an excitement too hard to resist

And then you slipped away

You ask me to stop, to breathe, you are my breath, you have always been

And now you slip away

You for me are time, do not stop, be there with my steps, be there in every rhyme
