A Million More


a poem inspired by Ben and Nora

by Kelly Lyle

 

I want to hold your gaze

For a million seconds

And for a million seconds more.

 

You will soothe away the chaos

And swirling space dust in my mind.

 

And I would hold your gaze

for a million seconds,

and a million seconds more.

 

I want to dance with you

For a million days,

And for a million days more.

 

Your graciousness will hold me tight

And caress my tender thoughts.

 

 

And I would dance with you

for a million days,

and a million days more.

 

I want to travel with you

For a million years

And for a million years more.

 

Your precious heart will laugh and sing

And embrace my inner joy.

 

And I would travel with you

for a million years,

and for a million years more.

 

For with you…

 

A million seconds…

 

And a million days…

 

And a million years…

 

Are but moments to explore.
