one second

Click here to hear the poem read aloud:

one second

one second in a lifetime
one second of pure surprise
the second when I first saw you
and tumbled lost into your eyes

one minute unexpected
one minute of pure bliss
the minute you were in my arms
sharing that first sweet kiss

one weekend spent in Venice
one weekend dazed together
the weekend when we fell in love
I knew it was forever

one month you crossed the ocean
one month you left your world
the month you shared your life with me
said you’d always be my girl

one year of laughing phone calls
one year loving far apart
the year distance meant nothing
you were deep inside my heart

one thousand nights I’ve wakened
one thousand nights I’ve wept
one thousand nights I’ve thought of you
wondering how I ever slept

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
