A moment I wanted to arrest,
with cruel and swift precision.
A moment I wanted to rewind the clock.
A moment I wanted to stop from occurring
If I could only share with you
all that I am feeling.
Then, maybe, you could understand me.
Do not fear my friend
To embrace life
Don't hold back. For time is short.
When my last breath has been taken
And you. You are looking over my life.
Take time to think about the times we shared
And think of them from my standpoint. Not your own.
So what of the people there?
In a world cut off from ours.
In our daily routine their pain forgotten
We wastefully pass the hours.
Shadows of the past
darken my world at the strangest times.
Heavy patches of sadness and pain.
As a youngster life was a game
an adventure all the same.
Time was endless fun to be had,
to stop and think? Surely mad.
I was torn by worry and pain.
You were my comfort.
I was tired of shattered dreams.
