time is a foe i have faced before.
it speeds up at the thought of sunshine,
and slows down, then rewinds, then repeats
when im sinking beneath the shadows.

you never spoke of time,
even though it encased your life,
with a timer in your hand, that led
straight to my heart, and not enough
batteries in the world to keep you with me.

your time was up,
and mine was just beginning.
i would give anything to see you
again.
