Only A Moment

I stand here

My eyes burning

My throat like sandpaper

Under the sun

Under the sky

Under the influence of my mind

I stand here


Thoughts wander and weave

Under the sky

Above the sea

In my mind

About you

About me

About all I need


I realize that I am alone

All but the sky

Which covers me

Covers my thoughts

Covers my dreams

With a shroud of insecurity


Yet your love peeks through

Till I am broken and 

Ground into sand

Blended into where I stood

Where you stand


I am alone

But you are here

I see the sky and

I long to spend an eternity

Under its comfort but

I would trade the infinite sky

For only a moment with you
