Snippets

 

Snippets

Memories come and go

Like a flash of lightning

Moments of realization
Moments of wondering
Moments when my heart
Couldn’t stop thundering

Seeping in through cracks

The holes in every day

Moments of laughter
Moments of tears
Moments of thanking God
That you were here

Snippets come fleeting in

Like bluebirds flitting about

Moments that astonished
Moments of connection
Moments I couldn’t believe
Your warmth and protection

When the sun peeks out

In a bright early morning

For a moment it waits
For a moment it is silent
For a moment nothing breaths
And everything is quiet

And the moon says farewell

And golden light appears

It warms all it touches
It breathes light into dark
It creates the beginning
Of a brand new spark

Snippets come fleeting in

Like bluebirds flitting by

Moments when I ponder
Moments didn’t come freely
Moments when I’m reminded
Good things don’t come easy

Snippets come fleeting in

Like bluebirds flitting by

Then they’ll land softly
And never say good bye


This poem was inspired by a love story I heard recently. One of the things I love about poetry is how we are able to connect with the deeper things in life, the ones that touch our souls. Thank heaven for love stories.
