Time

time spent,
time wasted,
time waiting
time wanting

time passing.

could we go back
to those secret times
of hidden laughs
and special jokes

could we ever steal that time back?

forget the past
and live again
without the shadow of
doubt
between us?

could we ever,
take it all back?

up the stairs with uncertainty

how will you react,
to the sight of me?

could we lay down
and laugh again?

time spent
time wasted
worrying

time gone
from our time

minutes pass
standing at your door
gathering the courage
to knock

time wasted
planning
what to say.
time spent
thinking

open the door
find you there,
this time...
