Each Shining Moment With You

"Were it possible to see further 
than our knowledge reaches,
 we would endure our sadnesses
with greater confidence than our joys.
For they are moments
 when something new
has entered into us,
something unknown;
our feeling grows mute in shy perplexity,
everything in us withdraws,
a stillness comes,
and the new,
which no one knows,
stands in the midst of it and is silent."

- Rainer Maria Rilke -
