Tapestry - Poem by penny green

Life a series of brief moments
Held for a second, barely a breathe
A sigh and a fragment of a life has gone
Perphaps a sensation of pain so fierce
Or a gentle kiss upon the lips
Reach out, let not that shard of life fall and shatter
But alas like mercury, the shreds of silver break as they fall away
What was a word, a deed, a touch
Breaks into a million peices as it ebbs into infinity
Perhaps etched upon a memory
Never to be lost, nor even to fade with time
But alas not like a fossil trapped in stone
Tempus fugit, fluttering away like a feather on the breeze
Reach out, try to grasp it, gasp it tight
Hold it, hold it if you can
Sigh, sigh dee[ly but do not regret
Each shard, each fragment might have made a tiny mark
A stain upon the fabric of life's tapestry,
So intricate and stained by tears of all mankind
