For The Want Of A Day

I’ve gone back to a more romantic flavour for this one. Hope you like it.
A day, a day;
What worlds are lost for want
Of a day.
What words left unsaid,
Hearts never broached,
All for the want of a day.

An hour, an hour;
What chances missed for the want
Of an hour.
What secrets untold,
Hands never held,
All for the want of an hour.

A minute, a minute;
What glances not seen for the want
Of a minute.
Such eyes never seen,
Gaze not lost in,
All for the want of a minute.

A second, a second;
What heartbeat not felt for the want
Of a second.
A blooming not caught,
Loves start so missed,
All for the want of a second.

A moment, a moment;
Grant sweetly to me the eternity
Of a moment.
A life time at once,
Held in a breath,
All in the eternity of a moment.
