I had a beautiful moment once.
It was a beautifully flawed, wonderfully un-perfect moment...but so beautiful it makes my heart leap and the breath catch in my throat and my eyes glow with remembered beauty.
The moment was laughter and seriousness and a thin sheen of sweat across tan upper bodies as our legs lay tangled in the sheets shoved down to our waists...it was 108 degrees outside but we clung to each other like it was -7; because his arm is draped across my waist with such perfect beauty, and his other hand tangles in my hair with such passion we almost believe we will have a thousand such moments.
Sunlight beams down through the windows and my palm is spread open across his heart like I am the key to unlocking it, and for a moment we don't need to talk, or can't talk, or don't want to talk because we can feel something happening...I couldn't tell you what it was then, but I can now.
The universe shifted slightly, and that moment stood out gleaming from all the others.
If, at the end of our earthly lives, we get to see a highlight reel of our lives, I know that one beautiful moment will be featured.
