If Time Could Stand Still

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

if-time-could-stand-still

If time could stand still.

for the most important moments.

So that we could fix them in our minds -

our first love,

the feel, the look,

that wonderful reeling feeling.

If only it could last for more than a second or two.

If time could stand still,

when we realize that love is real -

that moment when we both say I love you.

Holding onto that for longer than time would allow.

If time could stand still,

at the moments which mean the most

Those special times,

when we are together,

when kisses mean so much

and passions smolder.

If time could stand still -

when we spend quiet times ,

just you and I.

Holding hands and silent strolls,

being together for many moments more.

How lovely are the nights spent,

under the stars above -

when we dream of days gone by.

Times we had that were so special

if only time could stand still.

Just to give us a chance,

to embed it forever in our hearts.

Just so the special times -

wouldn’t disappear in the blink of an eye.

Memories fade, and there is sadness in that fact, but they are wonderful while they last, eh? Loved the poem, Rasma!
