In this moment I’m living
Tomorrow never comes, as the fire
Blazes at peace, in seconds
It rises and falls, but enjoys
And relishes in its own heat.
The classical piano sounds in the hallway
Its beauty striking and lonesomeness intriguing;
In a moment I feel it in my chest,
An instrument with the keys replaced
By heart strings and rosebuds.
The conversations from the couch
Spring eagerness and joviality, a harmony
In our small brown eyes;
A talk of futures, pasts, and presents
And the memories to come of this day.
And the family harmonizes their voices
To create a muted melody of grace;
A moment abnormal in our disconnected lives,
As the cold blackness of the evening
Begets a united defense.
