A little Moment Only
(Erika Labinsky)

The fragile girl was standing there with her baggy shirt
A sunbeam hit her reddish hair, her breath was all he heard
Outside, there was the humming of the cars and life
But he just sat and looked inside and offered her a smile

Her head turned slowly to the flowers on the windowsill
He watched her fingers stroking over violet leaves of silk
The smell of melted butter lumps filled up the room with heat
Her cheeks turned red and then she stared down onto her feet

The waitress turns the radio on, 't was a Santana song
He saw her lips form silent words, her fingers played along
The clicking of his silver spoon had made a little sound
Her dainty shoulders scarcely twitched and then she turned around

The little blue points in her eyes were sparkling in the sun
He felt he had to say a thing, but everything was done
She took her coat and when she left, she said: "Have a nice day"
Her voice was low and somehow sad and then she walked away

He drank his coffee and he listened to the cars outside
A little moment only he felt as if he'd cry
But then he took his suitcase, he was already late
The door was swinging slowly and still Santana played
