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, 
You disappeared; 
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.
