Time is too fast or so soon


What's in a day 
What makes it go
Why does time pass
I want it to go slow
One more day with you
Or an hour or two
Just to sit by
And talk with you
I miss our early breakfasts
And long talks on country roads
I wish I could have known you were going
Before you were stuck in that home
But now it's just too late
No words left to utter
You left me now
And far too soon
Before I had a chance 
To say some things that matter
So I still talk
I hope you listen
No matter where you are
I know I mean a lot to you
And even though I'm late
I forgive you for the pain you caused
But not for leaving me so quick
