Stay A Moment Longer - Poem by Charles Garcia

Stay a Moment Longer.

I say: stay a moment longer, listen to what I have to say:

The things you do not want to hear as we are all going to
the same place, no choice but to pray.
A place we choose not to stay, this given day,

Open up your eyes from solemn sleep, put your hands
Across your heart, feel a heartbeat not to be surprised to
Know you are all there, not in part,
as we wait the dawn so much Awaits us,
not to be all-wrong.

A dream can be your tomorrow as they say; so do not
dwell in sorrow for tomorrow, could turn a life of rapture
into felicity, this is the tomorrow we waited for yesterday,
Lets be happy in it.

Charles Garcia
