One heart beats soft and quiet—

Two hearts wait for the spark.

Three times I asked these questions—

Four times they answer naught.


Six days with one more waiting—

Eight nights until we’re done.

Ten moments—did I fail you—

Twelve seconds did we stop?


Five minutes more I promise

And then to sleep I’ll go—

But only when you promise

Tomorrow you won’t go.


Our heart beats soft and lonely—

Two hearts wait for a spark.

Three days—will it be over?

Four minutes—watch the clock.


Five days before the sunset,

Chases airplane’s tail.

Six minutes—weeks or hours?

Two more—I cannot bear.


Please stay with me and slowly

Tomorrow we will find

That yesterday began for us

Before our minds or time.
