while we while

While we’re here
While we’ve got time
While the moments trickle away
While we can

All it takes is a while
While our eyes mislead
All you need is a while
While you decide who to trust
All the while

A while to reconcile
A while of denial
A while to muster your will
A while pausing everything

The way might take a while to see
A wound does take a while to heal
If life be but a while of uncertainties
Understanding would take a while

Your efforts might all go in vain
It’s worth the while
Your best intentions might boomerang
You’ll recover in a while
Calamities, accidents, mistakes might hound you
They’ll take a while
For what is life if not immediate?
A while
