The Art Of Moving On

At thy eyes, in bewilderment I gaze,
Reminding my mind the merits of sanity,
As amidst thy hearts many colors, I stand amazed.

My life's journey sealed by Time's timed calibre
My journal is empty, but my time far spent,
Beholding in daze, a cat at another, purr.

In fascination I savor this moment
With ardent oblivion of the day preceeding
Yet saving my favorite rose, and kissing her frozen.

Is there a world beyond her?
Like bugs to flame, I'm drawn to wonder.

"In fascination I savor this moment..." Just that line alone moved me...some moments/minutes/seconds cannot be exchanged for the most precious stones, its all about that very TIME...all about that 'gaze'...

If it's love, at that moment, you begin to wonder like u said, "is there a world beyond her?"
