Time Stood Still

For just the briefest moment,

almost against gravities will.

The earth stopped revolving,

time stood still.

When he took her in his arms,

saying, "My heart you fill."

Her eyes overflowed with tears,

time stood still.

The day they said their vows,

they gave into loves will.

For in that passage of their lives,

time stood still.

A few years down the road,

she entered the world with a shrill.

As they looked upon their newborn daughter,

time stood still.

Through many moments of their lives,

they were met with that thrill.

Whether happy times or sad,

time stood still.

Almost sixty years from when they wed,

as he was laid to rest on a hill.

It happened to her once again,

time stood still.
