There was one day
When we were very small
When we decided to plant
A sapling between us
At the time I saw it
As a metaphor of sorts
For our friendship and love
As evergreen and lasting
As the branches sprung before us.
But lately I can hardly
Remember the love
That inspired the seed
That grew into a wood.
Now day…

Life moves so fast
Now
Lately
Sometimes it seems
Sometimes I think and complain
About how slow it all is
And I think and wish
For it all to speed up
Oh how I wish
For a chance to complain
A moment to wait
A moment to waste
And I know it’ll go
With or without me
So I guess I’ll go with it
Before…
