Delicious in its taste
Cherished in its intimacy
Enjoyed without haste

Tempura on cheese cake
With sprinkles on top
More than my stomach can take
But, until the end I won't stop

This moment lived has its poetry
The fortune cookie tells me all
When it says to be me perfectly
A lesson I'll try to remember and always recall
