… A Pause Button

Don’t you wish that life had one big pause button?

A pause button would come in handy when Christmas holidays seem to be soaring along like a jet plane.

Or when on vacation on some tropical island for a mere wink.

It would be wonderful to just sit

and revel in relaxation

or stop and take a good thorough look at life when it seems at it’s best…

…or when we are at our best.

But a pause button would also come in handy

when we know

we are about to see someone

or do something for the last time.

Holding the hand of a loved one who is dying, or

kiss someone at the end of a relationship.

To hang suspended in a that moment of heartbreak and beauty.

But life hasn’t any buttons.

It only has hours

and minutes
