Wishing For Time to Stand Still


Clock, Ladies Pocket Watch, Time, Clock Face, Pointer

You stole quietly, 
gently 
into my life. 

And captured 
my heart 
without fanfare 
or trumpets. 

Your love 
is graceful 
and eloquent. 

Your heart 
is that 
of a lion 
with the elegance 
of a tender 
kiss.  

You've taken my heart, 
and held it delicately, 
lovingly, 
in your embrace. 

In this peaceful 
retreat, 
with you, 
I will linger, 
wishing for time 
to stand still.
