Sand In My Eyes
No amount of time could be enough together,
I just wouldn’t be satisfied
With infinity; or forever.
I would have eternal life;
As long as you're near,
I could stare into your eyes
I would be your armour,
Your sword and your shield.
We could count grains of sand on a beach,
Or buttercups in a field.
I could write you poems for centuries;
With every rhyme,
I would be safe in the knowledge
- we have unlimited time.
I would hold your hand,
And stay by your side.
Without a doubt,
With every supernova we could count,
Until every twinkling star burns out.
We could do this until all steel was rust,
Until the New York skyline crumbled to dust.
Although fear that the end may be soon,
Creeping closer with each full moon.
So little time,
We needed more.
Time washes away
Like the waves on the shore.
I could pluck every rose
And four leaf clover,
But when the hour glass runs out
I can't turn it back over.
When I'm with you time moves
Each kiss one closer to
