Things that make up an ordinary everyday.
( Moments, moments. )
Smiles, frowns, boredom, laughter.
( More moments.)
A cup of chai/coffee, strong or weak. Bickering, cribbing. Rain, sunshine, birds, trees, flowers, wind rushing by.
( Moments which fly. )
Whispered promises which echo in the head - the dream of tomorrow, the dream of the tomorrow after tomorrow and then after. Dreaming and day dreaming.
( O fleeting moment, can I catch you? Where are you going in such a hurry?)
'Did you know...?' - 'Did you hear...' - 'You won't believe what happened...'
( O fleeting moment, won't you stay for a bit longer? )
Darkness falls. Stars twinkle.
( Silly child, even if I am gone, I'm yours already. Yours to remember, yours to replay over and over. )
Sometimes there is a smile before sleep, or a drop rolls from lashes onto pillow and dries away. Or sleep claims without much deeper thought.
And moment becomes a memory.
