week 198 ~ catch a moment and hold it in your hand

with 6 comments

catch a moment and hold it in your hand
this isn’t something everyone could do
and though things haven’t work out as you planned
you’ve had the fortitude to see them through
the glass may be half empty or half full
but does it really matter now you’re here
loss doesn’t have gravitational pull
so leave it on the shore don’t draw it near
your boat is ready now it’s time to go
you’re ready too though you can’t quite believe
that’s true you can’t deny it either so
take a deep breath and bet on your reprieve
it seems the whole world is singing you on
look around once push off it’s time you’re gone

  1. Quite like that idea of holding time in your hand…albeit for just a moment. :-)

    • I love the speeds of time. Always easier to get things done on a slow-time day.

  2. Time to move on … “loss doesn’t have gravitational pull” … That’s stunningly put. And, yes I too like the idea of holding time in your hand. Sounds poetic, but is practical. Taking control.

    Wonderful! Enjoyed much.
