All in a Moment

You were here with me
One moment
and
Gone
The next


Everything changed
The moment
You called
and told me that
the immigration came
and took you away,
and all in a moment
my tears spilled out and flowed
like the Rio Grande
all in a moment
my prayers went up
into el cielo
like the plane that took you back
to a country you
could barely even recognize


But you come to visit me sometimes
in my dreams I see your face
in my thoughts I hear your laughter
on my mind
every moment


and NOBODY
can take that away from me
