I'm taking this moment

A feather drifting on a breeze

I'm taking it, and I'll keep it

Tuck it away somewhere secret

A hidden safe place

I'm memorizing these seconds

And stowing them away

So I have them just in case

I find myself lonely on a cold, rainy day

I'm tracing my fingers

Like a whisper across your skin

So I can learn the contours of you face

Noting where one feature ends

And another begins

I'm counting your freckles

Filling my hands with your silken hair

I take everything in

With a touch of my lips

To your soft, shy grin

Every small detail, touch, smell, and sight

I commit it all to memory

So when I fall asleep at night

My dreams of you will be so vivid

True as the stars, shining bright

When I hold your sweet face

Carefully in my warm palms

And look down into your lovely eyes

You watch me with irises of smooth cobalt gray

Sprinkled with shards of cloudless skies

They float above me as I dream

And overrun my memories

I love the way the light makes them gleam

How a single glance can make my heartbeat freeze

I'm taking this moment

A feather drifting on a breeze

I'm taking it, and I'll keep it

Tuck it away somewhere secret

A hidden safe place

I'm memorizing these seconds

And stowing them away

So I have them just in case

I find myself lonely on a cold, rainy day

Maybe if I close my eyes

And recall this moment in my mind

I'll feel you holding me

Safe and tight

And it will seem like you're there

All through the night
