This moment

This moment.
Right now, someone hurts,
would trade the rest of her life
to be held for one minute,
this minute – now.

This moment.
In this darkness
clouds obscure the moon,
dark energy hides emotion.
Exists not, what we cannot see
right now.

This moment.
That heartbeat has faded to silence.
The next has yet to be.
We can by faith alone call this
the time between heartbeats –
this still, dark silence
of now.

This moment.
I exist, and you.
We exist,
not in the past or future,
the “we” exists in just
one moment – now.
