Trying to hang on to every moment of time
I find myself collecting evidence of the past
Reminding myself these memories are mine
The clock just moves too fast

I find myself collecting evidence of the past
A jacket, a necklace, a teddy bear so sweet
The clock just moves too fast
I wish I could press repeat

A jacket, a necklace, a teddy bear so sweet
Proof of those who’ve touched my heart
I wish I could press repeat
But with time we drift farther apart

Proof of those who’ve touched my heart
I’ve learned love’s ups and downs
But with time we drift farther apart
Soon enough they’re not around

I’ve learned love’s ups and downs
Reminding myself these memories are mine
Soon enough they’re not around
Trying to hang on to every moment of time

*Pantoum style, I am aware the lines repeat, its part of the style. This piece was written for a creative writing project, though the fear of running out of time was the inspiration.
