TIME LEFT WITH YOU
I feel as if I am watching a movie
and someone has pushed the switch to speed it up,
making it go by faster.
I keep screaming for them to slow it down,
it is going too fast,
too fast for me to grab all that I can,
before the film runs out.
Life won't let me back it up and go through it all again,
so I have to reach out and
snatch the pieces that can't get away from me,
but they are so small,
they slip right through my fingers.
don't leave me.
