Moments

When we were young, and bruised of knee,

We\'d tell ourselves stories about the future. 

We\'d say how clever, beautiful, and rich we\'d be. 

And what we\'d look for in a suitor. 

 

We\'d think of our houses, or castles, 

With a partner we loved more than life. 

Our kids, those adorable little hassles, 

And a job with tons of money, but no strife. 

 

We\'d think about our...destiny, 

This perfect life, with no worry. 

And a moment, with clear chemistry, 

Where we knew we were right, in our theory. 

 

Now I\'m older, and somewhat lesser in surety, 

Instead of looking for the perfect moment, 

I feel the peace, with love and purity, 

Happiness in the life I have chosen.
