Falling in Slow Motion



But in slow motion so I see everything clearly

Reaching out a hand
And almost catching hold


Oh… so nearly

Whilst clinging close
Those thoughts held so dearly

Images of loved ones
Picturing faces so clearly

And times gone by

Times of smiles

And wasted whiles…
And memories stretching on for miles

All remembered
Fondly framed

To keep the feelings fresh

Alive and aflame
Although time demands
That nothing stays the same

I’m falling
But only on the inside
There is no need to fear

There’s nothing that can hurt me

In here
