one instant

Sometimes my heart catches a beat,
and tries to hold onto it,
because that beat holds a memory.

it's gone now.
but i saw it.
i saw the gold.
i saw home.
just once.
just for an instant.

like a picture of something precious.

something in the light.

yes. it's the light.
so rare.
but so full.
for one instant I feel like I've seen a long lost,
long loved,
dearly remembered friend.
for an instant.

and they smiled at me.
we shared a secret memory.
then they were gone.

and once more
i am searching.
