''One Short Moment''
by Priscila Nair
One short moment I saw you today,
for one too short moment,
I couldn't just stare at you until all the loneliness and pain
of all the time spent without you was gone,
I couldn't take time to notice every other thing about you,
one short moment..
I could only smile in passing as if I see you everyday..
as if I never loved you..
one short moment that makes one long life worth living..
