Locket

If I could freeze
a moment in time,
and keep it alive,
preserved,
whole.

If I could hold
a moment in time,
in my hand,
delicate,
light.

If I could drink
a moment in time,
infused with words,
sweet,
nourishing.

If I could inhale
a moment in time,
deep into my lungs,
warm,
fresh,
energising.

This would be it.
I would keep it
in my pocket,
or around my neck,
in a locket.
