All that I need is time To smooth these nipped edges How much more can I take I’m living a nightmare While standing here awake All that I need is time To help me muddle through These dreams of yesterday Like popsicles in sun They come then melt away All that I need is time You're still very much here Not like I have much choice Each breeze ignites your touch As the wind holds your voice All that I need is time Just take it day by day Small comforts slowly grow Nothing lasts forever This urgent pain will go

All that I need today /
Is this poem /
A reminder that our world /
Is built of pain and beauty
Oh, indeed it is, Lainey, it truly is.
Love the repetition and the sadness that ends with a flicker of hope.
A flicker of hope and perhaps a bit of prayer. Thanks.
