Drifting Away

Drifting Away

A Poem by Elizabeth Shaji

I wish time could stop
So that this moment, these feelings, this passion
Wouldn't ever fade
From the blinding sun I finally found shade

I wish time would stop
The happiness, the joy the memories bieng made
Wouldn't just be something I'd look back on fondly
My happiness tinged with sadness
My smile along with the tears that'll flow
As I look at the light that casted this shadow

Everything will change to something I'll just be nostalgic over
Forgetting most of my memories, barring some
I hope that day wouldn't ever come

Never wanting to be distant from this feeling
I cherish every moment
Yet I can't stop my skin from prickling
Every time I think about the end

Only if there was something I could do
to stop this moment from fleeting by
The pain in my chest grows
As nearer comes the time to say goodbye

"Just enjoy the ride! Don't think about the future"
Are things I everyday hear
How do I make them understand?
That with love, inevitably comes fear
