Take this instant !
Take it this instant
And change it if you will , from the bleakness of dark night;
Into a flare of comets soaring through the firmament.
Take this moment that I know
I do not deserve .
But know a thousand would
Dearly live it - To live in some small moment of respite
With out the excruciating fear or pain , of ravaging disease
Take all the hours I have wasted
And hoarded , brooding on some rueful wasted thing
And live them if you can with a wild abandon
Too well I know the poor ; the destitute of
Despair; and their paucity of pleasures
Too many are their squandered instances .
Like me . And mine
But take this time
And use it afresh and without the baggage
I’ve borne down on it .
And use it,Without a backward glance
And let it be a rapturous vibrant ,venture of delight
As in its incandescent movement as it blazes
Through the dark ; with a searing joy across the night
Till dawn comes again by increments and phases .
Let it rage with radiance
Glow, and bring warmth where lies the frigidness of soul
And may it bring soothing breeze where rage and tempers flare.
And fan the tired brow of he who toils under the beating sun
But I feel -You too have moments just like me !
( in fact I'm Sure!)
And I hope you lived them to the full
Each as it deserved to be;
And don’t waver on
Each one small crotchet ; one small quaver
In that concerto
Before that last curtain and the final lull.
