About the Poem

In life, we are occasionally lucky enough to experience an ideal moment - a moment in time when something impresses us so much that a perfect picture of the moment is forever etched into our heart and memory.

Picture Perfect

A crystal clear moment
Resides within my mind
A strikingly beautiful picture
A precious pause in time

I hear her heartfelt laughter
I see the look in his eyes
Their faces are lit so brightly
In that very moment time flies

They romp like carefree children
And I have to stop and stare
She feigns her death, he feigns to follow
Collapsed in laughter without a care

Fast- forward twenty years
And I wonder where they are
Likely still laughing, loving, playing
Seeking out their special star

I see love isn't Prince Charming
Or being swept off one's feet
But finding the delicate moment
Where best friend and true love meet

Very nice. thanks for sharing it!
This is such a lovely poem. It's quite sad yet surprisingly refreshing. It's one of the nicest poem I've found on the net. Keep up the good work
Oh my God. That's the sweetest thing I've ever read. I know, I'm one of those suckers who's heart melts at seeing a couple in love. That poem made my day. I hope I can read more!
I love this poem. It rocks.
This poem is one of the more beautiful and touching poems that I have been able to find on the Internet. Most poems out there are about people being down on love. It is such a refresher to see that someone believes in the power of love.
