Little Words

Grow up faster,
Need me less,
Reach the sky,
Stand up tall.

Make time go,
Speed it up,
Get it done,
Don’t look back.

Hear my voice,
Feel my embrace,
Know I tried,
Look straight ahead.

Keep forging,

There is no choice,
This world is all there is,

Make it last.

Ours will be far shorter a time than it should be:

Years compressed into months, days, hours, minutes.

It will never be long enough,

It simply could never be enough time with you.
