The world’s just spinning along. We can’t feel it so we forget it and the days pass by at over 1000 miles an hour. We barely blink and the day is gone before I ever got to tell you how much I love you or feel your warm skin against mine. Tomorrow will be the same, another few thousand miles, another 24 hours, and not a moment to spend with you.
Everything moves a little too fast. You are here, and you are gone and I swing from happy to sad to angry before you can find a way to make it right but just fast enough to piss you off. Next thing you know we are swept up in feelings of resentment and loneliness. How did we get here? I barely remember the trip.
If things don’t slow down soon we might not last. You are tired and I am tired and the more we try to keep it together the more I fear we are falling apart. The more I fear we are falling apart the more I cling to you and the more we both realize how often you are away. Spinning, spinning, a cycle of back and forth.
So just for the moment, let’s be still. Let’s just stop. Let’s just breathe. Let’s just hold each other and forget all the things we were mad about before. None of it matters I can promise you that. I know you are afraid and I know you think you know what we ought to do but trust me this time and I can show you a better way.
The world’s not forgiving but we can be for each other. You are too important, we are too important, to let the days turn into months, the months turn into years, without taking a moment here and there to stop, be still, and remember why we are here. So just for the moment, let’s be still.
So just for the moment, let’s be still. Listen to me breathe and remember why you love me.
Just for a moment, let’s be still. I’ll tell you I’m sorry and you say it back.
Just for a moment, let’s be still. We’ll fall asleep in each other’s arms and when we wake we’ll start the world spinning again.
