In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Linger.”
Tell us about times in which you linger — when you don’t want an event, or a day to end. What is it you love about these times? Why do you wish you could linger forever?
There are many times I dare to linger
To stay when I really should go
When it’s time to bid loved ones farewell
My heart yearns, but the clock is my foe.
In a garden resplendent with dew
Where the scent of the rose doth abound
Where the butterflies light on the leaves
And all manner of beauties arise from the ground
My most beloved place to linger
Where I know all is well with my soul
Is in the presence of Almighty God
As His love makes me feel pure and whole
