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.
