A Poem Draft

One Moment in Time

I fell in love
with a girl sweet and shy,
bright as spring
when the birds sing,
with stars in her eye.
She looked at me
and my senses were caught,
with my breath taken away
in entranced thought.

Someday, I know,
at the back of the night,
when all darknesses are gone,
there will be light.
Someday I dream
all the moments now past
will be found,
all safe and sound,
and made to last.

Never before my clear eye
for such a vision has tried;
never before has my soul
known such a promise to be whole.

I fell in love
with a girl sweet and shy,
filled with joy
enough for a boy
to taste till he dies.
She looked at me;
the sun broke the cloud
as dawn takes a scissor
to night's shroud.

Never before has the light
poured from the sky to sight,
never again will the sky
look the same to the seeking eye.

Ever and again, I recall
the sun in its rise and fall;
never before has a name
made my world so not the same.

I fell in love
with a girl sweet and shy,
bright as sun's ray
in blazing day
as it pours from the sky.
Someday, I know,
a future far and fair
this moment returns
from memory burned,
and erased of all care.

Then it seems to me
that my soul rises free.

I fall in love
with a girl sweet and shy,
bright as spring
when the birds sing.
She looks at me
and my senses are caught,
with my breath taken away,
in entranced thought.
