Captured moment

Just a poem that partly popped into my head, that is there was nothing to give me the idea.

Captured moment

You turn to me
and the sunlight
is reflected in your face.

At that one instant,
a moment is captured,
the colours and contrast,
to be painted on a canvas.

I look upon it and see
the sparkle in your eyes,
the shine of your hair,
and the glow of your smile.

All I have to do
is look back to that day,
to be warmed by a sun filled sky,
to hear the birdsong fill the air,
and feel your love fill my heart,
as it does still.

I treasure this moment always,
and keep it close to my heart,
so I have your presence near me.


Another one with a little metaphor. I think it sometimes sounds more poetic if you can do without some common day to day type words such as photograph, snapshot, picture. I was going to use tapestry before I realized that 'canvas' is a more appropriate word to go with 'painted'.
Was slightly stuck with the last verse until I heard a line of song on the radio : "I could stay lost in this moment forever. Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure".
