Can not the time stand still; just once for me...

Can not the time stand still;
just once for me…

I felt the stain of his pain...

I felt the stain of his pain…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can not the time stand still;
just once for me
Just long enough to
stem the tears from falling…

I have heard pain today
as loud as church bells at high noon
The shrilling sound of silence
where a heart was slowly shattering

I felt the stain of his pain
etched deep in the crevices
of a once solid rock
If blood is thick – I am not convinced

The blood he nourished
brings pain in bags
A sprinkle here and there
A torturing pain
where love once thrived

Life is like that
Sweet like a flowers nectar
and bitter like blood splattered pain
All in a moments notice

Can not the time stand still Priya Patel
just long enough
for me to hold you tight
and whisper soft
everything will be ok
You are safe in the hands of God
