It is but a Moment

It is but a moment
a second
maybe two
floating in eternity
you are here
suspended in time with me
it is but a moment
a mere fraction of anything
yet I remain frozen
unable to move
afraid to even breathe
if this is only a dream
daring to reach for you
I might touch nothing
it is but a moment
time can fool one
the unsuspecting
caught by love's embrace
I wonder
is that your heart beating
or mine
God help me it is loud
it moves within me
like thunder
it is but a moment
a second
a mere fraction of time
suspended here with you
