Before Time Slips

Before Time Slips

A Poem by Abdul Aziz

Before time slips through icy fingers,
Before dreams whither and run dry,
Before hours run out of minutes
And we're united at last and I
Recount the countless fables
And this sweet endless lullaby,


Let me try to draw that smile
On the soft features of your face,
And in the corners of our eyes,
Let our points of view embrace,
And let us count these happy seconds
Till they melt to hours and days.

My favorite lines within this body of perfection are:

"And in the corners of our eyes,
Let our points of view embrace"

I love how the impetus of time makes you want to live fully each second before it completely dissolves away. The dissolution of time really forces us to confront our humanity and realize the truly important things in life.

It isalways good to 'count these happy seconds' before they fade. But seconds that pass into hours and days can be happy too.

Awesome dissolution of time! The inversion of time running out, to moments expanding into the order of larger measures of time implies Timeless moments, which is of course how we perceive moments to be when we are in them. And to fit all that into twelve lines! one for each hour, or month maybe. Very nice.

'Let our points of view embrace'. A wonderful sentiment in a well written poem.
