The Thievery of Time

I remember the feel of the waves as they crashed against my soul

How we fused into one entity

Spinning the clock backwards and recalling every second

Time turned into a thief and stole you away from me

I have no questions, only memories

The miles between cannot dim your smile in any way

I held that glimpse of you and carried it with me everywhere today


I thought about today a lot

While we were chasing our dreams, I thought about today


Amazing, how the days come and go

Amazing, how the world can take a backseat only to reappear suddenly

Amazing where you find yourself from one moment to the next


I thought about yesterday a lot 

I thought about how one last look can cause the heart to tear slightly 

I thought about the taste of rocky road, pralines and cream and the significance of ice cream on a nice summer day

I thought about intimate conversations that opened up parts of the soul

I thought about the view from the top of a pagoda and the enlightenment that resides there

Time will never have the upper hand, only momentary acts of thievery


Tomorrow will come

And I will hold on to the glimpse of your smile everywhere I go

  1. Time can be such a tricky thing. You close your eyes and it seems like standing still. And when you open your eyes again what you just held so close slips through your fingers and turns into a bittersweet memory. You conveyed that very well.
