    You and I have slowed to a halting pace again
    Because we are now between a rock and a hard place again
    Where my mind's eye told me to say goodbye but my
    Heart said it would not be so
    Where we must ease into conversation try our hardest not to grow impatient
    That difficult place just like
    We just met eachother
    Like the skin that will not always heal
    And you and I will always feel like we can't get away to save our lives
    And countless times we've tried
    But at the end of the day I find that there is no greater peace of mind than knowing that you are mine
    And no matter how long the stitch in time
    The thought of me will never elude your mind
    The way we were will haunt you still and
    the dream we shared no one can kill
    the hand of time
    the clock that does not rewind
    The memory of us and what we are now
    I can't help but want you
    But fools rush in and I don't want to do that again
    So is it better that we take it slow again:confused:

    I enjoyed this piece, the rhythm , the flow, and especially the message/meaning. Well at least the meaning for me.

    "But at the end of the day I find that there is no greater peace of mind than knowing that you are mine"

    I really felt that line. it flows soul-beautifully

    This is a soul-sweet piece
    the message is sound advice
    Love can be like a car, if it goes
    too fast we can lose control.
    Go slow and enjoy the ride.

    nice write! Thanks for sharing with us

    Thanks I'm just trying to give myself subtle reminders that I can do bad alone and that my heart is stronger than anything that he could ever put either of us through.
