but I thank you, Doreen ... for the inspiration
~Moments In Time~
Wise words were once spoken ...
teachings of "timing is everything."
A second glance taken in passing ...
in a split second ... we witnessed what the future would bring.
Perhaps a prophets vision ...
the words now etched in the forever of ring true ...
I don't need any explanations ...
for time stood still ... when I first laid eyes on you.
Light travels thru time and space ...
and I saw Genesis reflected in your eyes.
But time can slip too quickly away ...
taking with it safe passage ... to where future's lie.
Still I wouldn't trade one second ...
wouldn't trade one single night sublime.
For I lived and loved a lifetime in a moment of you ...
now engraving your memory ... in my rhyme.
I almost hesitated ...
I nearly allowed precious time to slip thru my fingers.
But fate was kind that day ...
though time too soon took you away ... the love still sweetly lingers.
Minutes taken by minutes ...
night falls to light then gives way to day.
It is in those seconds just before dawn ...
where angels ... and innocence stay.
For every thing there is a season ...
a purpose ... a reason ... a plan.
And there are no greater ties that bind ...
than the promises made ... to a dying man.
Sands of time ... winds of change ...
tides measure time in calendar pages.
Phasing moons and sundials ...
marking time's passage ... down thru the ages.
We are all here on borrowed time ...
the clock begins chiming upon the moment of birth.
It is the time we spend searching for love ...
that allows us to know ... Heaven here on earth.
*Moments between moments* ...
*precious moments between moments in time.*
You were my meant to be ...
Be it by gift of fate ... or written in destiny's design.

"Time no longer waits for me
This love now carved in stone
Your breath the wind beneath my wings
The light in your eyes will guide me home
A flame will burn eternally
A mystic wind blows by
*A Moment between Moments*
Is the all the time I need to fly."
excerpt from *Moments Between Moments*
written by DeVante'
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
What does the worker gain from his toil?
I have seen the burden God has laid on men.
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men;
yet they cannot fathom,
what God has done from beginning to end.
Where the touch of the lover ends
And the soul of the friend begins
There's a need to be separate and a need to be one
And a struggle neither wins
