The Sweet Melancholy of this Moment



Is one brief ray of sunshine worth it?
when your sitting at the bottom of a well.
Is it worth it, to stretch out your hand to feel it’s warmth?
Is it worth it, to feel it’s heat on your face, it’s glare in your eyes?
Is it worth it, knowing that it’s only here for one still moment? Then it’s gone?
Wouldn’t you try to grasp it, as if that moment could last an eternity?
When your heart breaks, you realize you are the only one who will never leave you.
And the sweet melancholy of this very moment is all that you are,
all that you have, and all that you will ever be.
Nothing and no one can take this away from you.
