Even That

What if we

Could slow down the time we have?

What if we

could simply arrange it?

We could live

a couple of lifetimes, but

Even that

would not be enough.

 

Children hate

to wait to get older

When we do,

it’s not like we thought

Spend your life

Chasing your days to bed

Comes the day

you’ll never wake up.

 

What if we

could live out the moments

stretch them long

and linger awhile?

Tilt our heads

to taste all the raindrops

Save the days

and live them again?

 

Halt the sun

ablaze in the morning sky

Stop the clock

and don’t let it change

past mistakes

will soon be forgotten

Spend your nights

together in love.

 

 

What if we

Could slow down the time we have?

What if we

could simply arrange it?

We could live

a couple of lifetimes, but

Even that

would not be enough.
