A moment; a brief period of time... but yet some can last for a life time. The definition doesn't really fit the real meaning does it? Some you want to last for ever and other's you can't wait till they end. Moment makes a sound, it's the tick than the tock of sometimes an imaginary clock. Yet like that tic and tock, you can not get it back, real time cannot be reset and first moment feelings can never be re-felt. That's why we are told to, "Live in the moment"!! Say what needs to be said, do what needs to be done, write what needs to be shared, for like a blink of an eye, it's there than it's gone. This is where regret is born, from chances we didn't take.
New life comes in a moment in time and death in an instant. Moments have gone on to change history, and the moments will last into eternity. Words spoken in hurtful anger, vows reached, the cry of a newborn infant, the scream of grief, the look of love in a glance, the brush of a strangers hand. The kiss from a child so gentle on your cheek, the slap of anger struck to the face, the words, I love you, forever, and until we meet. Life is lived in these. Some will go on to last a lifetime, some will end in defeat. Some will leave you sprinkled with joy others drowning in sadness.
But the truly good thing about memories is, like magical fairies, they can be captured. Not always to be kept in jars, memories can be captured in photos, on tape, in writing or where I prefer, in the heart. The heart is the most special because it's always with you and you can take it with you when you go from this unsure earth into your future life in eternity. Will we remember them there, when we see our loved ones gone before us? Will we be able to see into our selves like a veil where they lay hidden there? Or will they be stored into boxes like treasures, where they have value like nuggets of gold? I know not yet for it's not my time to go.
So now do you see what's so important about moments? Do you see the importance of never missing a beat? Do you understand what it takes to make them and never mind the way they may not be complete. For NOW is that moment, for there may never come another! NOW is your chance to never have to suffer regret! NOW is that tomorrow that you may never get the chance to meet!! Go create them, make them special and very unique. Your children will thank you, your parents look forward to and for your spouse or lover will make them feel complete. And you... oh yes you!! The heights they will take you, the healing it will reap, you will feel like you can go on forever and never ever accept defeat.
