at some moment – February 20


Mortality is a tricky beast.

At some moment I will feel

a catch, a stop, an instant,

and my eyes

will blink or close,

my mind stop registering,

to not open again.


I may hear briefly

the ones I love

or the world around,

whatever the sounds are,

but it will stop.


And I pray that in that moment

the one who created me

will be faithful.

That at some moment

I will open whatever eyes and sight

are appropriate for

the new moment.


And that I will be with

those I love

and the One.


I’ll see you darling.

See you in the morning.
