This Moment Now

Kurt Philip Behm

January 1st,
  a crescent moon

The past crossed over,
  the future looms

A New Year dawns,
  as daylight breaks

With wishes fresh,
  new oaths to take

Feeling lighter,
  old burdens gone

New lyrics written,
  a familiar song

The year to bring,
  what fates allow

As wonder ages,
—in this moment now

(Villanova Pennsylvania: January, 2017)

  • Augustus

    Holy Jesus. I can't believe it. This brings tears to my eyes. I walked outside earlier this evening to see a beautiful crescent moon with a huge bright Venus below. And now this. I am lost for words. This is so beautiful and fitting to what fate has in store for me.

    I'm praying hard! It was my honor.
