If Time Stood Still - Poem

Updated on July 25, 2013

If time stood still

Where would I stand?

On a sugar white beach

In the hourglass sand?

If time stood still

Where would you be?

Happy in love,

Standing with me?


If time stood still

Would the stars stay in place?

Would they twinkle and shine,

As they framed the moon’s face?

Would the sun still rise?

Would the birds still sing?

If time stood still,

What would it bring?


Would the breeze still blow?

Would the grass still grow?

Would mountain peaks

Be covered in snow?

If time stood still

Would my love for you grow?

If time stood still

How would I know?

      Holy crow (first thing, literally, to come to my mind), this is awesome! It does make one contemplative about time, whether how fast or slow it goes or where a person will be. Two thumbs up!

      We can keep asking, answers may not always come. We can keep answering even if questions are not asked. We can keep waiting for uncertain things to happen. We can keep loving for reasons we have embraced for so long. We can keep living for as long as we know how important breathing is to us.

      Thank you b. Malin for your kind comments and votes. Indeed there are moments we long for time to stand still, but there are others we would just as soon push the fast forward button.
