If I could capture time, I would,
Before the dawn ensues,
Where I might have a moment more,
Held mesmerized by you.
I drift in thoughts, enraptured by
The silence of the night,
While softly there, you hold me close,
As passions re-ignite.
As time draws on, in rapid flight,
I beg this night to last,
Held captive by your warm embrace,
Aware as seconds pass.
I pray the night to linger on,
Beyond the realm of norm,
To satiate this great desire,
My want and need for more.
And though the moments pass us by,
Before the dawn ascends,
A whispered phrase reminds me that
Our time is not at end.
So hold me close, an hour more,
Within this gift of time,
And love me once again my dear,
Before the clock tower chimes.
