Freezing Time Poem by Edna Griffin


Sometimes Lakes freeze over
Sometimes hearts do too
But my heart is too soft
My body is too warm
To ever be frozen with you
We give and we take
And with love we do make
The most of a few precious hours
While our love blossoms forth
Like the earth giving birth
To a field of beautiful flowers
And while our bodies are in line
And love's on our mind
I wish I could find
In sweet moments like these
A magical way to freeze time
