What Time Will Never Give

Updated on February 3, 2016

Arthur Gulumian


What time has done is given me a moment—
A moment to look at the world reflect
From your eyes that held my reckoning.

It has given me the moment to clasp your
Abandoning embrace, and a lifetime to be
Awakened by the gentle breath of your morning breeze.

It has given me a mist that bears both
A warmth and a hint of shiver—

It has given me a smile that is never abandoned.

It has given me thought that never relieves—
For I think of no other than you my canary.


But there is one thing that time will never give—
Just one moment longer to look into the beauty in the eyes you hold,
One moment longer to feel my lips upon yours,
And one moment longer to whisper I love you.

How could I ever forget you?

      Love is a blessing as well as a betrayal. Thanks for expressing your views on love within this poem. It is beautifully written... Rated Up

      Of course, and it's portrayed differently through everyone's point of view, which is why love poems come in so many varieties =]. Thank you cocktail.

      I love this. You made it incredibly easy to relate to, for anyone who has ever experienced an emotion as extreme as 'love'. Very well written!
