Father Time and I played what seemed to be this harmless game of hide and seek

I never knew how well he played

So here I was losing track of time

Trying to find time

Only to get lost in time

Reminiscing of the last time

That you and I spent and shared time

Together, oh how sweet that time

Here I am again spending time

Wishing it was that time

Now each second away from you ticks in my heart like Big Uncle Ben minute hand

Carving craters in my heart only to be filled by minutes that I miss you

Minutes colliding into hours like meteors to planets

Days without you make us feel lightyears apart

Oh how I loathe just the thought of missing you

I long for the moments I had to just study the outlines of your eyes

The laughter of your smile

The giggles of your run

The joy of your tickles

I hate having to miss you!

But I can still feel your embrace like it was just this morning

Who knew Father Time hid within the hollows of your open arms

Tucked away in the depressions of your elbow and underarm

Waiting to cradle me as if for the last time

Time ceases when your arms constrict my neck

Nothing else matters but this embrace

So I hold on for dear life

Sucking up every second Father Time allows

Bottling up every moment that your patience can handle

Until you kiss me as you push me away

Oh what wisdom God has sewn into those lips

For with every stitch He’s equipped them to heal these craters of pain

One kiss upon cheeks

Calms the storms of life I face

Your lips are Heaven

Holy and divine

Angelic, sweet and kind

Planting kisses on cheeks with precision and tact

Like God hanging stars strategically against the black

To tell stories, give direction and light the night

Love is truly blind but somehow you manage to give me light

You’re my north star on nights I soak pillows with tears

And with a moon as bright as your heart who has time for fears

See here I go again

Losing track of time

Trying to find time

Only to get lost in time

Reminiscing of the last time

That you and I spent and shared time

Together, oh how sweet that time

Yet again spending time

Wishing it was that time

Still playing hide ‘n seek with Father Time

But with you I win every time

These arms are my base

Olly olly oxen free
