There was a time when I wanted to embrace you, death
But when the time came a couple of hours I had to ask.
Of all the things when you wake me up, alarm clock
All I ask for is some spare minutes, around 120 would be fine.
Last night when I was battling with you, insomnia
Tossing right left and center
Wishing 2 hours would just casually fly away.
As a child,
When times were tough and testing, exams
In school I always prayed
Let these 2 hours stretch so long,
For me to study more
And score galore
On the ground though, playground
With friends and games,
Always warned you, time
Come not so soon, give me some grace
And come 2 fun hours away.
Mornings were the same, with the sun bringing light
And mom’s same music, yelling
To wake me, to take me on
The ride of the day
Why not some more time I ask?
What the big deal in 2 hours anyway?
Later in life,
When I was there, in college
There were moments,
When you could have helped,
Make it to class on time
Make it to finish line,
But you were most needed
Those 2hours with coffee and her
Went like a blur,
But another 2 with just coffee
Were a curse.
As of now,
Always running short of time here, office desk
With files flying low while the works pilling high
How many wonders could have been worked
If you just gave me those 2 magical hours though?
Never have enough time to be with you, wife
Just stealing flashes from here and there,
Never have time to sit and chill, show you my love,
Give me 2 hours more on the house for thou.
At the park with my hand in hers, my child
I wished these hours would just pause for 2
Only for the cause of my love and joy
Is with you
Need to go out and pamper you, moi self
For health, care, love and spares
Want to travel, want to relax
Want to be whatever is to be.
Give me 2hours you, but I’m telling
I’ll come back for more and more!
