Of Time

I have a lifetime ahead of me

But all I can think about

Are those few hours I spent with you

Closer than ever

wrapped up, lost in sheets together

 

I have a lifetime ahead of me

But all I can think about

Is sharing the same space, the same air

So close I could feel your heart beat

To the same rhythm as my own

 

I have a lifetime ahead of me

But all I can think about

Are your arms, embracing me

Your breath on my shoulder

Our hands entwined

 

I have a lifetime ahead of me

But all I can think about

Are your lips kissing my shoulder

Wandering across my neck

You loved me, I wanted to love you

 

I have a lifetime ahead of me

But all I can think about

Are those moments we spent

Our bodies close, Our hearts closer

My mind far off in the distance

 

I have a lifetime ahead of me

But all I can think about

Is how I rolled over onto my side

Facing away from you

Leaving your love behind me

 

I have a lifetime ahead of me

But all I can think about

Is how you gave me all

But my mind wandered off

To a place where you were not

 

I have a lifetime ahead of me

But all I can think about

Is how at that moment

As you tried to love me

I thought I had all the time in the world

 

I have a lifetime ahead of me

But all I can think about

Is how I was wrong

I wasted time I thought I had

Now my heart aches for more time with you
