Tag Archives: Caught in the Moment

Quote

Impressions

We see you there and we ask why
Shouldn’t we just pass you by?
 
Life lessons tell us this is bad
We know; our mind’s eye is sad
 
Experience says this can’t go well
We’re all here so what do you tell
 
We close our eyes expecting mostly nil
We listen, then silence, all is still
 
We look, to be sure you’re still there
Holding our gaze we wait with despair
 
Then it happens, your mouth opens
The sounds, as if from the heavens
 
We peek; to see, is to believe
Caught in the moment we perceive
 
Black again descends, we float
Preconceptions we try to demote
 
We’re in awe and a little red
The voice, I mean nobody said
 
From the shell our eyes do see 
That an angels voice doth speak
 
Beauty so pure we have to account
Speechless, only tears flow about
 
Smiles press our lips as you sing
Pride tucked deep this is the real thing
 
Thanks for the courage to stand there
And let us who question, even dare
 
Impressions led us astray once again
You sang for us as if life depend
 
And we were in awe, even shocked
What did we know? We mocked
 
Pure as the driven snow, you shared
We quivered by the truth you bared
 
With nothing to lose you may have guessed
We went away in awe, thoroughly impressed
