Give Me Just This Moment, Please, Forever

Music: Kyrie from Missa Paschalis.
By Grzegorz Gerwazy Gorczycki.
Sequenced by Boguslaw Krawczyk at Kunst der Fuge.

Give me just this moment, please, forever.
Replicate it for me on demand.
As I flow unceasingly downriver,
Do not make me leave this day behind.
Understand my bittersweet confusion
As graduation crystallizes youth,
Tallying my treasures with precision,
Illuminating wistfully my wealth.
Out of all my moments pluck this one,
Nor let me lose its grace until I'm gone.
