Stopping time

Updated on August 27, 2012

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

      Usually what is important to us somehow doesn't get much of our time. That's why we have to stay focused :-)

      I really love this. Sometimes I get caught up in the past and forget what's around me. We truly need to capture the moment and be thankful

      Maybe one cannot stop the time, but can enjoy the most out of it to make it last forever.

      A lovely poem unfortunately time does seem to go very fast especially when you have young children. Our memories are very precious.

      Yes we do feel the love of all, the family, especially within our memories to be locked away for the length of our lifetime and beyond.Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem of life.
