The longest second…

Time never changed its pace,
Neither slowed nor sped for them
But what was but a second, a second ago
Was now so much more than then

The sun still rose in brilliant hue
But the eyes perceived only grey
The heart still beat within them
Yet, somehow life had lost its way

Some lay shattered in pieces
While others gathered themselves
But no one was whole again for sure
Some unlike, some a shade, of olden selves

They reminisced happy memories,
And how they thought they still had time
But they’d waited just a second too long
And now that second was time
