Has time ever stood still for you?

I recall a place where it spun around me,

Tossing me in every direction.

Not knowing if I was coming or going.

So much to do and accomplish,

Never knowing where to begin.

As time goes on, others touch your life.

Some greater than others.

Friendships blossom into love

 and even without the preparation,

it is gaining momentum.

Adding to the never-ending hurricane that life seems to be. 

You just want to stop and get off.

Slow things down to a pace you’re familiar with.

Knowing sadly, others will be hurt in your plight.

But it’s then you can breathe and relax best, and let go.

That moment, when time stood still.
