Actually, there’s no fun in watching
Another you love
My time came
Yet your watch was running a few minutes slow.
I decided to wait
Slowed down the minutes
Hope to synchronise down the path.
Instead, you found another whose time had come
To match yours in the here and now.
Now the minutes tick past even slower
Knowing I put time on hold
For someone. Else.
Did I tell you I loved you?
Did I need to?
Would it make a difference anyway.
This patient tried patience
For you, I strived.
For you, I dived.
you me, I’ll survive.
