Time

No more clocks! Break them all for they are all thieves and wicked task masters and they steal you away from me.

Stay in our bed. Don’t get up. Let me hear your heartbeat just a little longer while I’m wrapped in your arms with my head on your chest and you run your fingertips up and down my arm.

You slip out of bed and I slide over and hug your pillow while inhaling your scent and absorbing the warmth of your body lingering behind. Just another moment. Just a little bit more of you.

Give me more time.
