If Time Had Stopped.
If time had stopped,
Where you stood and waved -
A hint of a smile that couldn't be erased,
And we forgave each other.
Like, old friends reuniting...
Old stories to tell and old feelings long gone.
You knew while I couldn't figure it out,
As a bystander I heard the news.
I had treated life like a dream,
And you were a form of reality as you stepped right in.
You taught me about the things I had never imagined to do;
What scared me and seemed strange to me.
Like a dream,
Beyond the mist that continued to cloud,
Blending into a nightmare –
Smiling grimly, you waved at me good-bye.
As you sank below the surface of the ground -
I thought you’d rather fly.
I stood there,
And watched you lay in a place I imagined you to not.
People mourned, and I observed.
I was the zombie in the dream that passed too quickly.
You were the one who passed by -
And all of a sudden,
Time had stopped.
