Extra

Extra




If I could have an extra second
            In every minute,
I’d take it so I’d have more time to love you.

If I could have an extra minute
            In every hour,
I’d take it so I’d have more time to love you.

If I could have an extra hour
            In every day,
I’d take it so I’d have more time to love you.

If I could have an extra day
            In every year,
I’d take it so I’d have more time to love you.

If I could have an extra year
            In every millennium,
I’d take it so I’d have more time to love you.

An extra inch on the Earth:
An extra spark on the Sun:
An extra thought in my mind:
An extra atom in my body:
An extra beat of my heart:
An extra kiss on my lips:
An extra finger on my hand
            To count the extra extras:

But If I can’t have an extra anything,
            I’ll take this now, this here
And love you fully with every bit of me,
            In every now,
In every here,
