Stolen moments in our lives-
We touch, but cannot hold.
Which leave a mark indelible…
Their impact can’t be told.

They alter values, mold our minds
And serve to shape our lives…
The nuances do fade away…
The changes made,… survive.

The love, the hate, the fear, the shame
Each one a trait imparts-
And with their impact changes came-
In spirits, and in hearts.

Stolen moments, many sweet-
Are gone, the tears remain…
In every highway, byway, street….
Their legacy is pain.

It's amazing when we reminisce... which moments have left indelible marks, isn't it?
