Tick Tock

I. Stop

Just learned to crawl, and Lo...
he is up, he is running
No get, No set, Just Go..

He puts his little hand,
out to the speeding car
and says "STOP".

He argues with the rain,
Racing time to grow.
All my heart wants is to say "No.

Stay where you are.
The way you are."
I put my hand out to him and say
"STOP."

II. Yesterday.

3 Eons ago.
No, that day it did not rain
It was a Strange autumn.
It was the day I tried.
I prayed,
I cried.
It was the day Innocence died.

III. Time.

Waqt.
Samay.
An Instant.
Pal.
A Moment.
Now.
Aaj, Abhi.
Kal.
