For a moment, a brief moment, you set my world ablaze.
For a moment you gave me joy and hope.
Though that moment is gone, and you never knew it existed,
I remember it and am grateful, it helped me cope.
Love is not for me, I realize, I at least learned that much
And that is why I will never tell.
But it helped me, it formed me, it made me smile
For a little shard of my life, I was happy for a spell.
