Stop Button For Time

.

Time marches on seemingly stuck in fast forward.

Snippets thrown at you here and there.

Actuality today and by tomorrow a memory only.

Not realizing in the moment that they are but fleeting treasures.

Sometimes you forget to enjoy them while you have them.

Then you awake with a sadness that you let one slip away.

It's traces forever brandished on your heart.

Afterthoughts don't work here because you can't go back.

If only there were a pause or rewind button.

Some way to go back and retreive the things we let slip away.
