a little time

a little time by anelephantcant

I need a little time
a few seconds not a minute
to reach again your troubled heart
and to try once more to win it

I need a little time
to kiss the sadness from your eyes
so once again you can remember
that I’m the only one who cries

I have all the time in the world
but it seems it’s not enough
stars die and mountains crumble
still I don’t have time to gain your love

I need a little time
to find a life that I can live
I know you’re going to walk away
because I have nothing left to give

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    Such a beautiful poem. Starts off so hopeful… what woman would not want a man willing to make every effort in the world, even if in vain?


  2. Beautifully done…my opinion of the woman’s plight though is: if he can’t see it, then walk away and be happy you didn’t get stuck with him.


Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
