'Still Life' by Patty Medina



Another day
I find myself feeling this way
Like I want to make it all slow down

I bought a ticket
For this train, now I'm on it
And I'm full speed ahead no looking back now

Another place
I have to be, put on my face
No time to see my reflection or hear the sounds
Of poetry, philosophy, and all the things
That make you wonder how this world goes round

But sometimes I see you
A vision I can't hold on to
So for today I'll be still life with window

Another promise I couldn't make
Another candle on a cake
That I forgot to wish on

I was so busy making plans
I felt I needed both my hands
And when I let go of yours, you were gone

But sometimes I see you
A vision I can't hold on to
So for today I'll be still life with window

But sometimes I see you
A vision I can't hold on to
So for today I'll be still life with window

You, how I see you
In my window view
Oh I see you

Another day
I find myself feeling this way
Like I want to make it all slow down
