For Only Two Seconds

For Only Two Seconds

I tried to see how long I could stay focused without thinking of you,
And those two seconds made me feel like you had gone for so long.
Then I made a fool of myself as I hummed and wrote about you in a song.

My talents are rare and far in-between and singing is not something to hear.
This voice of mine cannot carry a tune, yet I sang about missing your smile.
And before long people stared at me as I kept singing for more than a mile.

I tried to cover my ears to see how long I could go without hearing your voice.
The ear drums made noises like the wind does inside the seashell at the beach.
And the sound frightened me as I wept as I felt like you were out of my reach.

It just seems that my love for you is so strong that I can’t be without you.
My mind is so crazy that even in my sleep I continue to see you so clear.
Your beauty is so breathe taking that my heart feels your presence so near.

I tried to block your name from my brain to see how long I could continue too.
And after two seconds your name echoed inside my head with illusions of love.
Your name became a passion of emotions spinning inside and heavenly above.

With my eyes shut I envisioned touching your tender skin with tenderly strokes.
My fingers felt the vibrations of the warmth emitting the heat within the blood.
And my eyes though shut emptied in tears of joy that soon they formed a flood.

I tried pretending you didn’t exist to see if I could continue living without you.
Those two seconds drove me wild missing those beautiful eyes that look at me.
My legs buckled in shame and the weakness forced me to go down on one knee.

Inside my rib cage I felt my heart pounding in fear of loosing those two seconds.
So now I don’t try to forget about you for any length of time as you are here.
Sleeping in my bed as I watch you my love and I am happy without any fear.

    SO soft and sensual, dedicated with love, words of wonderful passion for another even if above. You write such beautiful lines of feelings held in time. I am always amazed, sit in awe of the words that come from a keyboard of a man who is trying to stay strong. your fingers flow across the keys with the sound of the strumming of guitar strings, music, pure music to my eyes not my ears,, but then there is another side to this,, your words make me want to put them too notes of music! The key of G is my voice reality, the Key of D, was when I was young,, KEY of E minor makes the song so whoa full, KEY of A,, well that’s another story,, LOL!! keep the candle burning write until the light goes out,, I am humming along with your words even though with an out of tuned 12string guitar. peace and love my friend, sweet dreams sent your way,, you deserve some rest and quality of life ,, I am sending prayers your way,linmarie

  • Wish I could hear you sing these words, it doesn’t matter how they come out, music is music and my heart would welcome you singing them in your voice. I write what has been in my heart and always will be, even if my wonderful wife is no longer here to hear them. Many of my writing she read as I would sent her a copy to her computer even though her computer was just behind mine. It was more romantic that way, then she would have her reader on the computer read them, we would laugh at the expression on the computer, then I would read them to her with my voice and she would often cry with joy. Wish she could hear your music with my latest writes, but maybe she does hear you. You just brought me tears of joy with your kind words, thank you for those memories of words, and tears. At the dance of my son’s wedding I danced about fifteen times to hide my emotions, nobody could see my inner emotions crying inside of me, I just got through eating breakfast with my brother and he was telling me how happy I looked. Yes, I was happy for my son, happy that the picture of my wife and me were in the pockets of my two sons and brother in law, but deep inside I hid the truth of how sad it was not to be dancing with my wife. My brother was surprise when I told him how hard it was to hide my emotions so that my son’s wedding would not filled with grief. Thank you for putting my words into music, you are always welcomed, you are truely an angel in disguise, and I am happy that you are always around, still wonder how you can read so many poems from so many people and comment, paint and do art work, write, be a wonderful wife and mother and grandmother and still have time to do so much for everybody that knows you. God has a special place for you, and so do I. Thank you for everything.

    Oscar, sometimes two seconds is too long going without the one you adore, love and ache for in life, your arms, lips and bed. We all know that feeling at one time or another. This is absolutely breathtaking. You have a wonderful gift and talent for composing such lovely and passionte writes…pulling the reader into your world. This speaks to me like a fine song from your heart and soul. Love it…big hugs and smiles from across the miles, Lisa =)XO
