. . . . . . . did you know that i sit next to you now in the tiniest house of time?

all in one long sentence

rose_q&aand so it goes…
there is so much to remember,
that as i sit here to think
nothing comes.
(at least in this moment)

yet, all—at the same time…

why is it that my body feels
all that is
all that was
all that will be again?

the truth is
that there are words to express
what you mean to me
but it would take a lifetime
to say
(all in one long sentence)

there is no question about it

    Lovely poem! I particularly liked this stanza:

    ‘why is it that my body feels
    all that is
    all that was
    all that will be again?’

    – it is so very simple, yet so very profound.

    Hi Robin – The sentiment you put into this writing is priceless.
    The lifetime it would take to display in words to the special one,
    you did so in the last verse very well. I love this writing :)
