Two Dimensions

Two
dimensions of time overlapped one day,

Changing my
point of view,

I had been
all alone,

Pondering
what to do,

 

My life had
burned almost to the end,

I’d say it
had been full,

Now I waited
for what came next,

And for life’s
storms to lull,

 

But in a
flash my world turned,

As the two
dimensions met,

When I saw
what could have been,

It filled me
with regret,

 

She was in
the kitchen,

Standing by
the sink,

Staring out
the window,

Taking time
to think,

 

I thought
she was very alluring,

So I came up
behind,

Kissed her
neck and said,

“You are
mine, all mine,”

 

Tears welling
up in her eyes,

She turned
and faced me,

“Why couldn’t
we be this way forever,

Why does
this have to be?”

 

I knew what
she meant,

I knew why
she was crying,

How can her
world go on,

When my
world is dying?

 

I had
wrestled with time before,

Always I
would lose,

Time dances
to its own rhythm,

And doesn’t
let you choose,

 

One of the
cruel ironies of time,

Is that lifetimes
don’t match,

While one
world is slipping away,

Another world
starts to hatch,

 

I am being
pulled out of orbit,

Into the
dark of night,

My world
will soon be gone,

While her
world will be shining bright,

 

Why is life
so complicated?

It seems
like a cruel hoax,

Our lives
are so mismatched,

While time
laughs at his joke,

 

I brush a
wisp of hair,

Away from
her worried face,

“Let’s just
enjoy every minute,

Savoring every
trace,”

 

“We will
share our lives all we can,

Until time
reshifts into place,

That’s all
the control we have,

We’ll let
our hearts set the pace,”

 

Across two
dimensions our hearts will search,

Endlessly it
seems,

But we will
forever bond,

If only in
our dreams.

    1. If it’s not mismatched time, it’s being mismatched at the same time. Two people have their work cut out to love the other person more than themselves. Thanks for your thoughtful comments.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
