When I first got to meet him
Soon after you left him
I did not know him
But something caught my attention.
This something grew stronger
Every day was revealing
A depth that was building
The real-ness was superceding.
I knew it was only for a lil’ while
So I wanted time to stand still in style
I grasped with both hands to tie it down
The shortness of lil’ I hadn’t known.
The lil’ while was soothing
That lil’ while was healing
Deep sighs of relief it brought
Frantic answers were never sought.
The shortness of a lil’ while I did not know
How lil was a lil’ while?
As vapor it vanished, as a breeze it passed by
If you knew, why didn’t you tell me a lil’ ago?
The shortness of this lil’ while hit me brutal,
You came in and took him, it was close to fatal
This shortness of a lil’ while I did not foresee
I was not prepared, shocked in despair.
I wish he’d be wondering
About the same shortness of time
Longing for a lil’ bit more,
Maybe for an hour or so
This shortness of a lil’ while,
How lil’ is a lil’ while?
The answer was never on the clock,
But secured heart-deep with a lock!
