Smaller Than Time ~ a collaboration



I am
Smaller than time
Every tick of the clock
Is a moment lost
When another, I Love You, passes by
How tragic a life is
Ever so, but, if it would, only capture

A photograph in memory
Sweet lips, deep soulful eyes
A feeling of want
To taste, to see

To touch the graceful
Curves and dips defining
A timeless adoration
To know, to feel

The hold, held tight
Beating hearts as one
Every grain of sand that falls
To the sound of loves sweeping hand

Swept away by time’s
refusal to bend for chance
Precious moments now hang
In the museum of my mind

Where walls through halls are adorned
With generations of past lovers
The likes of Romeo and Juliet
Even in death, true love has no regret

Eternity the home of lovers
Forged in the fires of history
Freed from the hourglass
To endure, to inspire

Yet as these hours flow into days
My life now measured in minutes
I watch as the hands of fate
Sweep past my longing
Reminding me that indeed
Smaller than time
am I

I have been blessed again to be given a gift. To collaborate with a Lady who cannot be measured by anything other than her own striking voice, as can be seen here…see the link…now click and enjoy her beauty.  Come on…do it.
Oeuvre & Out by Rita

Rita, dear Rita, you are the strength behind this piece. You flowed with precision and grace. Your final two stanzas, nailed it. Friends, I may have started this poem but Rita closed it and I’m sure you will adore her other writings. I do!!

Thank you Rita, for your friendship, support but most of all, for knocking my socks off.  My toes are getting chilly
