Wrapped in velvet paper
That shone against her misty pearls
He gifted her moments
Of promises and joy.

She unwrapped the box
And out flew the stars
Playing with time
As silvery moon descended
On their valley of love.

Wings sprouted
And among the clouds they walked
Hand in hand
Moments re-captured
A lasting hope
Of togetherness.

Moments are to be shared
Moments are to be blessed
Savor the past, present and all
'Cause moments aren't to be chased.

Moments are smiles
And a few drops of tears
Moments teach us to live
As we learn to win over our fears.

This Poem is shared with One Single Impression - Moment.


  1. Wouldn't it be nice if we could gift wrap our precious moments in order to be saved and re-opened at a later time? I loved the metaphorical nature of this.

  2. What a beautiful composition!
    Moments constitute Life!

  3. She unwrapped the box
    And out flew the stars
    Playing with time
    As silvery moon descended
    On their valley of love

    Would have loved this to happen all the time. Love were to descend from heaven. Nicely GS!
