As if the world would stop…
when the sun has to rise,
scatter its prism of colours
over flowers wet with dawn,
when birds have to break
the solitude of night
with their silver siren calls,
when tides must ebb and flow,
memories slipping through
the sand where you used to
tread, softly, slowly
fading, and hearts must
carry on beating regardless.
