Give me just this
moment, please, forever.
Replicate it for me on demand.
As I flow unceasingly downriver,
Do not make me leave this day behind.
Understand my bittersweet confusion
As graduation crystallizes youth,
Tallying my treasures with precision,
Illuminating well a wistful truth.
Out of all my moments pluck this one,
Nor let me lose its grace when it is gone.
