Drink It In

The most beautiful moments of life
are not planned.

They catch you by surprise,
leave you breathless,
pull your heart up into your throat.

Your only task is to hold your breath;
hold your gaze.
Drink it in.

The original beauty fades,
the afterglow, bittersweet.

Learn to embrace the cycle:
Surprise, delight, loss.
Surprise, delight, loss.

Do not try to hold on.
