Time

If I had but a year,
it would be filled with holidays
and seasons, and dinners
with turkeys and hams,
and Christmas in July.

If I had but a month,
it would be filled with days
at the beach, and walks in the park
with popcorn and hot dogs,
and pumpkin pie.

If I had but a week,
it would be filled with lunches,
and Happy Hours with wine
and friends, and long evenings
under a starry sky.

If I had but a day,
it would be filled with friends
in the morning, and family
in the afternoon, and the night
for just you and I.

But, if I had only a minute,
it would be filled with love
and last an eternity.
