    Everyone has to rush things these days.

    Daylight hours.

    Can’t we move it slow, take the time to say?

    I’ll wait on you.
    If you want it this way.
    Just keep unfolding.
    One moment.
    One layer at a time.

    Surprise me some more.
    Every thing that matters can be gone and disappear in a minute.
    So I’ll spend all the time you like.
    Let’s get up in it.
    Get all in to it; I want to know you by tonight.

    I see the depth and degree of you,
    I’m patient enough to wait for you too.

    Why do things have to go so fast?
    I like slower enjoy the ride.

    Time will continue to pass.
    I know, it’s getting late.

    Night time is creeping up.

    Dead lines are pressing on us.
    But this moment we can cherish it,
    because it doesn’t happen that much.

    You try and share your desires and dreams.
    But you’re not sharing your heart it seems.

    I told you I know you have a heart,
    but it’s hard for me to see where I play in its part.

    I thought I was number one once.
    Then I moved three places back.

    If you find the time to talk to me,
    and let me know where I’m at.

    I could get a hold on this crazy thing.
    If I gave you all the answers to the test
    would you still pass?

    If I did then nothing learned,
    nothing from you like in the past.

    If my questions are to deep,
    and my replies piss you off.

    It is because you may not be ready
    for such a love and prepared to pay the cost.

    Every one wants to rush things these days.
    Can we stop to take a breath?

    You work on you
    I work on me.

    Coming together with what’s left. :callme:

    *Ring* *Ring* ...Hi Hodee,
    I'm calling, cause I share your thoughts completely. Moments are very important to me, because they will never come again, and I want to savior each moment I can...whenever I can.
    Oh yes, I want to slow the "Whirl" down, so you can take a good look at me, not just see me, but look "In" me, and take the time to marvel in the beauty I hold.
    wonderful write up poet, I slowed up, just to read and...Inhale it.
    thanks for allowing me to slowly inhale the air...I took for granted

    Hodee, you're talking about cherishing moments together, do I have that right? The intensity of a single experience can be well worth savoring, for that exact experience will never occur again. Reminds me of deep talks that revealed treasures I was surprised to find. Thank you poet for giving me something to ponder.

    Oh yes......everyday I try to slow down. The world moves at such a much faster pace than it did when I was a youngin. Love the flow, the depth, the texture of this, HODEE. Break it down.
