if i could save time in a bottle
the first thing that i'd like to do
is to save every day 'til eternity passes away
just to spend them with you
oh time in a bottle
this song prompted me
got me to thinking
oh if only we could take those memories
those that make us happy, warm & fuzzy
and just lock them up
yes, lock them tightly in a bottle
time goes by and sometimes
it just plain rushes so fast
and life just happens while we are not looking
in a blink the present becomes our past
oh, how did that happen?
time, memories & experiences
mold and shape us
just like the sea-waves crashing against a rock
slowly, shaping that rock, smoothing the rough spots...
the good & the bad times
help to form us into who we are here and now
i do wish
oh yes, so much
that when i was in the middle of 'mommy-hood'
i would have known just how quickly it would go by
when you are smack dab in the middle of it all
it seems like it will be like this forever
sometimes i feel i took it all for granted
a mommy & daddy with three beautiful
little girls in their long braids...
i was just living & loving life
taking one day at a time
i guess i thought
that they would always be little
that i had lots of time
to say the right things
not be too busy for them
taking time to make
sweet memories out of
the simple things in life
just enjoying the time together
instead, whoosh there it went...a blur, really
if i could only have stored some of that time
hoarded some of it for myself
maybe i would have hid it in a bottle
because those days went by so fast
i blinked my eyes and standing in front of me
were these wonderful, beautiful, self sufficient 'women'
instead of three little daughters with their long braided hair
now, when i see my little grandson's faces
oh i want to lock up their
sweet faces, little voices, chubby little fingers & quick smiles
yes, i know how speedy time is
where is the lid for my bottle?
maybe i should invest in a lock, a padlock for a bottle...
yes, then i could save time in a bottle
i am off to give each of my daughters a call
and tell them how much they are loved
& tell my hubs i love him too!
life is beautiful...i plan to enjoy every minute of it
spending it with those i love!
oh yeah, and i am planning to search high and low for that
ever elusive bottle with a padlock! :)
just time in a bottle
