I have never been in love like the poem is referring to but I certainly have gone places and done things that I have wished would stay forever. I feel like everytime I go on a vacation, I never want to return home. Usually this is weather related but if I stop and think about it, I just love spending time with my family, all of us together because I know that me and my brothers are getting older, and that I am going off to school next year and that my time with my family is slowly slipping away. Thinking about this for me, started a chain reaction. I realized that I am totally aware of how much time I have left before I go to school, so I need to savor it but what about those times where something unexpected happens and time is cut short. DId time freeze long enough then?
My freshman year, my grandfather passed away very very unexpectedly. He was in his 80s but probably the fittest men i have known. Everyday he jogged/walked 7 miles, me and my family expected him to live until he was 100. I always thought that I would have more time. Now that he is gone all I think about is the memories we have together and I wish, I could go back and freeze time in those situations, just to have even 10 more minutes with with him.
With that being said, don't just sit around and observe the world like the star. Go out and have adventures, fall in love, experience joy, and create memories where you just want to freeze time, because those moments are what make life great.
