The Pause Button

I’m pressing the pause button
So certain it will be fine
I’m not going to rewind
No, not doing that this time

Not going to hit fast forward
I really don’t want to age
And though at times I’m tempted
The stop button I’ll not engage

No….will hit the pause button
I’m going to stretch out this time
Going to savor each moment
In this love hour divine

I’m going to live each second
I’m going to make time stand still
For now I’m omnipotent
I can do it and….. I will

I’m going to press the pause button
Be oblivious to time
I’ll make you forget all else
Except that right now….you’re mine.

    Melancholy now and then is good for you, Richard. Gives clarity of thought! :) Take care

    I like the way your minds works. How nice would that be to have a remote control for life with every little thing begin just a click away? (though if life did have such a remote the buttons would probably stick and the batteries would die often)... I wonder though if the reason why some moments are so beautiful is because they are so BRIEF. Just some food for thought... great poem Eileen!

    Thanks, Timothy! I do agree...sometimes it is because they are so brief that they have such a great impact...but I do believe in making those good times last longer! There are some times that I wish would never end! ;) Thanks for the post!

    Such a great theme to write about...to pause for a while in a great place sounds like a powerful button indeed!

    I could definately use a pause button. Makes me think of the movie Click with Adam Sandler.

    Haha... I was just thinking of that actually! Perhaps we watch similar movies, eh?
