Just A Moment

One moment I ask for;

Just a fraction of Time.

To be spent with ‘me’ in my heart.

Neither to hear any sorrow,

nor speak any comfort,

nor devour some science or art.

Just to sit on a swing,

with nobody but me

and talk in the silence with my soul.

To leave for a moment, all tears;

all burdens, bruises and fears,

and for once be complete; be whole.

Can a person not have,

but a moment to oneself?

A moment to be… Just Be?

Why is every minute,

every hour of life

required to be paid like a fee?

But I do need a moment,

Just to brace myself.

To tell ‘me’ that it’s alright.

Just a moment to pause,

Just a moment to breathe,

Before I join in the Fight…..



  1. Very true. We have become so much obsessed with the world that we hardly have time for ourselves.
    I remember one of our teacher who used to say, “Just 5 mins, just 5 mins you need to give to yourself every day to reflect upon yourself, that is all you soul wants”.
    And damn he was very correct.
    Another beautiful creation of yours I must say.

    • thanks again….. I guess in this world of the fast and the furious, we do tend to give ourselves a back seat…. so take just a moment for urself… it may not always help… but it feels better…
