What is time but the passage of light?
Calculated by the position of the sun on any given day,
Time tells us what to do, when to do it.
If one wished for time to stop its roaring path forward,
Would the day stand still then?
Wouldn’t we all be in stasis, growing no older,
And never appreciating the moment for what it is.
Though through force of thought we cannot stop time,
We can hold a moment cherished forever.
We can live in a single moment.
If only I had that moment to hold on to.
