The Remains of the Moment

Quietly they came and took him away. 
What remains are the moments, moments before and after. The images, the words spoken and unspoken, that’s all that remains. That’s everything. Yet nothing but words.
Does it only feel like or was it really yesterday? 
She can no longer hide herself from the truth, she has to let go. Let go of the moment, the pain and the agonizing helplessness, for the new life breathing within. 
This moment is all there is. That’s everything. Yet nothing but words. The truth is in remembering that nothing remains but the remains of the moment.
