Time Slips Away
I won't be alone,
For anyone but you.
My heart lingers here,
Just for you.

With each passing beat,
This heart grows stronger,
Hoping to reach yours someday.
Watching you go on your way.
Times slips away, whenever I find you,
Looking deep into my eyes.
Heaven was where your lips met mine,
Darling, I beg you to stay.

Time slips away...

Waking each day,
Lingering, breathless,
Immersed in my dreams,
Where I meet you.

You're turning my way,
Just for a moment,
I'm missing you more every day.
Searching to find a way.
Time slips away, whenever I find you,
Looking straight into my eyes
Heaven was when your lips met mine,
Darling, I beg you to stay.

Time slips away...

Walking alone,
Quietly turning,
Trying to explain,
Why life's this way.

Wanting your touch,
I know I'll stay,
Wishing for you every day.
Forever, will seem the same way.
Time slips away, whenever you find me,
Looking straight into your eyes.
Heaven was where your lips met mine,
Darling, I need you to stay.

Time slips away...      

Alone on the beach,
Quitely walking,
I watch as your ship,
Sails away.

Return you to me,
Oh winds somday,
Praying that you'll find your way,
Walking your beach every day.
Time slips away, whenever you're near me,
Looking straight into my eyes.
Heaven was where your lips met mine,
Darling, I need you to stay.

Time slips away...

I trust in your heart,
You move and excite me, 
It was only yesterday,
I saw your face.

Silently waiting,
So much life to offer,
Praying that you'll come someday.
Baby, I beg you to stay.

Time slips away...

Acoustic guitar and a walk in a field in autumn, it's drizzling and you think of her, and of time slipping away, and of love that's greater than time...

Passion, patience, wait, emotions, beauties of nature, anxiety for the beauty, silence, stillness, sadness, hope, long wait................................ all these magnificent descriptions make the poem both jovial and gloomy. Dear sir!........ You have really applied medieval, classical and Romantic environment while creatingthis poem... All the description, depiction and portrayal is enough to startle the thoughts, compelling us read it again and again!!!

Sad.......but with a great touch of wonderful memories......
I agree with Barb, the Time slips Away repetition is a good interjection....I liked the visuals, and enjoyed it and wish for you the peace and serenity of your desires, Rich.....
Delightful work...

This poem just makes you breathless. I could see you siting there on the pier.

This poem really hits hard. Because time slips away in all circumstances (when she finds you, when she's near you) this poem left me feeling your helplessness. I felt the truth, force and depth of your love and yet, because time kept slipping away, and her with it, you were unable to have love fully returned to you. There is also a hopefulness within thes lines, just enough to keep ahead of the frustration of the pull away/come ahead behavior that seems evident. That you trust in her heart will serve both of you if this is a process of slow reconciliation. I felt a stab of pain when you say, "Forever, it will be this way.". I'm not a believer in promises of forever as I feel the future is not ours to give to another, it is impossible. But if it were possible to see ahead to the end of days and assess our emotional connections at that time, I really hope you are not still wishing for this love to bloom. That isn't meant in a mean way, I say it thinking of the loss of the same valuable "time" you speak of in this poem and because Iwant more for you.

This is very touching Rich. The repetition of "time slips away" really did serve to remind us of that fact. One is more aware of the value of time as we age. Soon, the decisions we had all the time in the world to make are suddenly more urgent, the things we planned to do have to be done or forever forgotten.


If I could sum things up quickly (which is a near impossibility for me) I would say, I hope you attain the heaven you seek but don't use the remainder of your time waiting. If this love cannot be, I want you to move past this unattainable heaven and toward a new one.


This is an emotionally packed, heartfelt poem Rich...nearly too painful to read. You convey your situation in fine form.
