Time never passes 
until it's never enough
to give or take
the love and other stuff.

I need to hold
a second
or I can't miss
it slip away

So harbor love
and all it's goodness
the time will come
when it's not there

make friends 
instead of enemies
and live life 
without a care.

(about two seconds)

    Love cannot be forced, yet it's power is always available to any who, are being the love that they are themselves, that's the miracle of love. "Without a care" for two seconds, is this what you meant? Smile, Sincere, Love, Moses
