Just a minute...Please

I just want to take a minute to cry,
  stop time from flowing by.
  *time to be sad or mad
   *time to feel or NOT feel
   *time to yell or sit in silence

I just want to take a minute to hold you,
  and drive away the blue.
   *drive away the ache of missing you
   *drive away the heaviness of "Life"
   *drive away the noise of the outside world

I just want to take a minute to rest
  and to sit with your head on my chest.
   *to sit close to you
   *to sit quietly
   *to sit and do nothing together

I just want to take a minute to live,
   to BREATHE you in, you have so much to give.
   *BREATHE in ...you are my BREATH
   *BREATHE in your calm
   *BREATHE in your spirit energy

I just want to take a minute to soak up,
  absorb it all in ...empty your cup.
   *absorb your worry
   *absorb your tears
   *absorb your pain

I just want to take a minute to cry...
  stop time from flowing by.

This one's for my oldest child, who is also my best friend. They have always been my calm. The person I could always count on for a hug, words of wisdom, or to snuggle. We have shed many tears...
This one's for my oldest child, who is also my best friend. They have always been my calm. The person I could always count on for a hug, words of wisdom, or to snuggle. We have shed many tears together. Just being close to them always makes whatever I'm struggling with just fade away.
