And never let it go

Take a moment that made you laugh

And hold it-

Never let it go.

Even when days are darker than

the endless nights,

And the hopes on the horizon seem

farther than your soul can reach...

Just hold it.

Even when your heart gets battered

and bruised

so much,

That you can’t imagine

making the morning...

Just hold it.

And even when the lights in your eyes

dim,

And the translucent window of morality

Can no longer divide you from the anguish

In the world

And the broken wings of your dreams

lie helpless at your feet…

Close your eyes.

And picture that moment

-a moment so pure

And clean

that the scene around you fades to white.

And a moment so innocent-

and yet so prominent-

That nothing else is left in the world

but hope. And carry it with you wherever you go.

And choose the moment that made you laugh

And hold it-

And never let it go.
