Relentless

Like me, did you hold your breath to wait and see

was it that long ago?

They tell me that time’s eternal
a minute that stretches forever
or the moments we remember
that never fade.

And if now you know
would you go and do
it again
would you hold your breath
splash in mud puddles
dance in the rain
would you do it again?

I’m on my second cup
of wake me up,
it works for me.
