A Life In A Moment
by Chelsea Donahue
She clung to her memories because they wore rose colored glasses,
To let her see the moments where she blossomed
And loved relentlessly and laughter was abundant.
He was the beach and the sun and the salty air
He smelled like home
And his smile was her weakness
When he put his arm around her and the world was safe.
It was easy to pretend that they would always exist for one another,
In a candy coated bubble somewhere high in the clouds
A place where she was entirely his and he was entirely hers.
What broke her heart was that moment couldn’t last an eternity.
But even in a world that was messy and imperfect
She could always climb into her heart and exist in one day
Where his words and his smile would play on repeat.
