Why can’t time stand still?

Why can’t time stand still?

As I sit next to you
I feel so cosy and blissful,
as if there’s nothing more
to achieve, no desire to fulfil
Why can’t time stand still?

As I sit looking at you
I see in your moist eyes
the softness of your soul,
and hear its silent shrill
Why can’t time stand still?

As I sit close to you
I can hear your heartbeats,
racing away rhythmically,
wondering what is God’s will?
Why can’t time stand still?

As I sit beside you
I find my soul praying,
urging God to grant me just
one wish: a magical skill…
to make time stand still
