Still Moments


You are alive, you breathe, you walk,
But is it your life you’re leading?
Not unless you have your moments
Moments of solitude, moments of peace

Moments you keep aside each day,
For you, yourself and your thoughts
To spend in silence, alone and with friends
To communicate without words or actions

Where thoughts and feelings charge the atmosphere
And the stillness within rises without
To engulf you and make you stay
As the moment just lasts forever

A chord within strikes to resonate,
With the faint drifting notes around,
For then you know you’re living alive
And your life is yours to treasure.
