A fleeting glimpse
There was one moment in my life
While all this made sense,
Just as long as a blinking of an eye
Just a fleeting glimpse through a reflective lens.
You just were born that night
And the nurse laid you into my arms
I looked into your mothers eyes
There was pride and hope and there was love.
And I saw your face, saw these curious and innocent eyes
Tiny fingers were searching to hold in my hand
In that moment I saw the light
It was like a door was pushed open inside of my head.
In that moment I understood the miracle of life
For a little moment I understood the meaning of love
I caught a fleeting glimpse of the eternal light
I saw the creation, maybe I saw God.
Just a fleeting glimpse then the door has been closed
And just those hazy memories were left
Just a tiny moment that I couldn't hold
After that there was emptiness and a humming in my head.
And I left the maternity ward
You and your mother were falling asleep
As I drove home the light announced a new morn
My mind was confused and than came the fear.
And I stopped the car on that highway number nine
And I sat there and I cried.
