Time Moves Forward


No matter how many seasons go by...


No matter how many roads you tread...



Whether rain or shine, snow or sleet...




Time never stops.. it keeps moving forward..
season by season
turn by turn




Even light bulbs flicker or run out...
because of time.

Season by season..
time by time..
dream by dream..






Time moves on while you sleep...
So fall asleep with your little ones..
snuggle and buggle and cuddle them..
even if you are all sweaty and hot.





Hold onto them..
Grasp their tiny fingers..
Soothe their chapped lips with strawberry flavored chapstick...







Dream alongside your little one..
snuggled up to you for no reason..
except for the reason of "just because."

Not for any reason except for accepting time..
As you both dream..
snuggled and warm..
you and your loved one..
a pet or a newborn..


Because Time Moves Forward...
and before you know it...
each dream of your night...
your night from the past...
will one day be part of a memory.


No matter how many seasons that you see...
Or how many light bulbs you will change...
The best part of time...
is the moments of snuggle..


Because some day...
one day..
your Soul will float up to Heaven...

Thankful and grateful...
You'll be in your soul..
knowing that
their beating hearts
Of Seasons, light bulbs and earthly time
will matter the least..
all because they'll have their memories...
for ever and ever...
for no other reasons...
all because..
you took the time...
but just to snuggle...

Moohaa: ironically I had that nasty butt shot and man did the medicine burn like a mother (had it last Sunday, matter of fact) so i feel your pain. literally. I believe all nurses need to endure that type of shot at least in their clinicals once to better understand why it's perfectly normal for the patient to squeal, squelch, squirm and cry out. owie.
