To Have and Hold

to-have-and-hold

It was only yesterday

he rose with purpose

Setting his intention to witness

all the colors set fire to the darkness

He knew this moment was one to remember

if only for a little while, if only forever

the day love turned to him

And if he could catch time,

hold it in his heart forever

he’d trade every tomorrow

It was only yesterday

she paused the chaos directing her life

Setting her hopes on promises made

beneath that sun blazing in the noon sky

She knew this moment was one to remember

if only for a little while, if only forever

the day love turned to her

And if she could catch time

hold it in her heart forever

she’d trade every tomorrow

It was only yesterday

just yesterday

that what mattered now

filled the night with the brightest stars

Each a testament to cherish the treasure

they found together
