Frozen Time


Father time
To this being I beg
That he will freeze time

At sunset or sunrise
Crescent moon and shining stars near
With a cool autumn breeze
For my knight in shining armor and I

Just you and I unfrozen
Standing near each other
At least for a while

So we could get to know one another
Talking for hours on end
Laughing at jokes

Singing along with songs while dancing
Playing instruments
Enjoying the noises of our making

To play games
Competing in fun
Smiling while yelling

I'd wish to know you
Heart and soul
To learn everything I can about you

To share your burdens
Pain, heartaches, and all
So you won't be alone

I'd ask to rewind time
And undo mistakes and problems
So to give us a real chance

I'd try and be a true friend
Caring, loving, and always be there for you
And maybe even be more

I hope and beg to get this chance
At least I could say I tried
To do everything I could

Who knows
Hopefully fate will see it fit
That we are one day together
