Beyond a Moment

by Mezmeryz   Apr 9, 2008

This one's for the girl who died in her dreams,
Loved him so much it was worst than it seemed
And whilst holding on to the silver lining,
The cloud ripped and out poured the rain.

This one's for the lad who had lost all hope,
Loved her so much he was hooked on the dope
But out in the sky his star's still shining;
Seeing it through the rubble is keeping him sane.

This one's for the mother who couldn't rejoice;
When her baby was born and it didn't make a noise
Know she knows it's in heaven and that keeps her smiling,
She lies there and that ray of the light wipes away her pain.

This one's for the father whose son was gone;
Who was sent for the better but they hadn't won
Now he lies in serene silence; you can hear him sighing,
The wind in the willows is his final voice.

This one's for the people who die in vain;
Who suffer in silence and smother their pain
Then they resort to suicide, as their final hope,
Last second regrets; wish they'd seen more scope.

The worlds a harsh place, life could be harder,
Every step you take, you either smile or suffer
Live life in each moment because moments move fast
Past was journey to this moment; which may be your last.

    Beautiful perception of the world. You have an enlightening view on this world's painful war against death. It's a natural occurrence.Yet so many are scared of it. It's the fact that what lies beyond can be quite frightening. You may have already created a world inside your mind. The demons of hell. Or the angels of heaven. A fire thats consumes you every day through day and night. Or the serenity of a happy place with no sadness. It could be that both terrify them. It's sad to watch someone pass over into the realm of nonexistence. They fade before your very eyes. Or maybe they never got the chance to live. It's something that I think about daily. What if you never got the chance to live? Would you remain in a parallel universe? Your eyes never opening. Your heart never beating. Never being able to experience a smile or a frown. Never being in love. I think death is fate. Don't let the future haunt and trouble. Live for the present. Learn lessons from the past. The future should never seem bleak. You are alive. And though our earth is in a dire struggle each day. You can make a difference with just a simple hug or smile. I can relate to losing people I love and being afraid of death. I tell myself now that I won't suffer in death. I'll live happily where ever I may go. Because I'm a nice person at heart. I know that there are many faults that I have. But i will be accepted. Because beyond this moment lay a future that holds no anguish. This was a beautiful piece. No suggestions to alter the form or any part of such a remarkably well penned poem.
    Great job :)
