Beloved Hourglass - Poem by Elizabeth Shield
This moment won't last forever
I know it well. I feel it fading.
It rushes through my fingers like grains of sand;
But, I enjoy the sensation.
A beginning cannot be celebrated
without an end, and
A life cannot be cherished,
unless it it lived.
That is why I treasure them.
This moment, and,
all the moments we have together.
I don't think I would love you as much
without the setting of a thousand hours,
hours we spent with one another,
hanging like a starry backdrop,
behind your head.
All this time, has embossed you onto my heart.
Pressed down like a stamp, gradual but essential.
Now, you are part of who I am.
And so is this time, together, right now.
I know this moment wont last forever, but-
That is what makes it special.
