Happen Stanza

Next to my wrinkly (ahem, wedding) dress.

Everyone says this time will go fast

Try slowing it down

So that minutes will last…


It’s not making magic

It’s moments to share

Because magic don’t stick

Just takes to the air.

You only live once, or #yolo they say

But #hashtags and #selfies all fade away.

It’s in between moments

Where goodness is made…


Seven and four

Forty and more

Blinking just happens

Can’t stop anymore.

Snowballs roll down

gathering speed

tear drops do to

straight down the cheek.

Cheers to your moments

the ones in between.

Live them and share them

and do like you mean…
