A Brief Moment


Upon golden sands of love

Within the beauty of it all

And the warmth of sunlight

Birds fluttered their plumage

Through empty spaces high above

For a brief moment

Nature gave me back

My youth and beauty

As we danced together

And in the beauty

Of dusky splen’dour

In perfect harmony

Together hand in hand

The sun slowly sank

Sunshine danced with me

Upon horizon of gold
