Stopping Time - Poem by jon terry

Forever I am dreaming
Wishing that I could stop time
To make you always feel safe
Wrapped in these arms of mine

I think I've found the secret
Hidden from us mortal souls
A conscious way of stopping time
Fall through the futures holes

Don't think about tomorrow
Next week or distant years
Live for the breath in your lungs
In the past leave all your fears

Never think about your future
In a blink you will be there
Wishing for all of your yesterdays
Hating time that's so unfair

Memories are the secret
That times so jealous of
A gift for our mortal souls

So we can feel love
