[definition: an example or single occurrence of something.]

I’ve since learnt
that life is a collection
of small moments
you can patch together
to make a long story
full of chance encounters
and lucky happenings.

If I look at You as
an instance
rather than a
week;

as a chapter,
rather than a novel;

like a flash of lightning
rather than a summer,

I can deal with it better.
