Time to Freeze Time

I wish I could just freeze time
She spoke wistfully
As though time had been lost
Or worse
Stolen with callous nonchalance

Lost time
Filled with the sounds
Of girls running and laughing out loud
Down streets whose names may have been misplaced
But that time is gone

Or that other time
Of sitting for hours
And simply being
being unburdened
From knowing
That those times will one day
Be lost

Another time
Of tired bodies
Lying flat on a dusty basketball court
Where hearts were broken
And dreams were dreamt

Maybe the time to reminisce about lost times is now

Or maybe it is time to
Dance a silly dance
Hug a big hug
Laugh a shameless laugh
Because you gave me a reason to want to
Freeze Time
