For Just A Moment

by Brenda Penepent   

For just a moment
    I’m sure I saw
    a flicker of light ahead.
    Perhaps it was your smile.
    Though past now, remembered,
    in my heart
    like the small sound of
    a butterfly passing by.
    No night
    is so dark
    that can not be brightened
    with memories of you.
    Raindrops carry along
    your blessings from heaven
    to wash away my tears
    and bring me hope anew.
