WHO WILL HOLD BACK TIME?

Light rain falls quietly now
changing the dry earth to green
will time transform my mind too
from winter to spring?
 

This spring garden blossoms now
full flowered fragrance so new
I close my eyes and inhale
thinking just of you.
 

Buds of the apricot tree
collecting far-away bees
how my daughters blossom too
transformed overnight.
 

Who will hold back time for me
watching the dust of spring light
how it seems to grow then fade
right before my eyes.
