One Last Moment

Husband comforting wife in hospital bed

I’ve only time

for one last moment

(one last breath,

one last smile,

one last laugh,

one last tear)


I’ve only time

for one more blink

(one more sight,

one more sound,

one more thought,

one more memory)


When my eyes close,

they’ll never again open.

When my chest sinks,

it will never again rise.


I’ve only time

for one last moment,

and then my life

will finally be gone.

All my fears

and all my dreams,

all my failings

and victories,

will all be gone

after this last moment.

For the next moment,

I will be gone.

I'm learning to accept and live with severe anxiety, and am super supportive of anyone with mental health problems. I'm crazy about the idea of perspectives, find joy in the little things, and make it my personal mission to see the beauty is everything.
