Five Minute Friday - collect

Every Friday we unite for five minutes to write on one word. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on collect.
Go.

Moments in time
memories
precious precious time with you.
I can collect it all, but I cannot bottle it, I cannot keep it, I cannot keep you.

Things
items
money
I can collect it all, but I cannot take it with me, in the end, it is all meaningless.

Hugs
smooches
kissing noses
holding hands
I can collect it all, and these are the moments that keep me warm.

Arguments
wins
times I know I could not be more right
I can collect it all, but what does any of it matter.

Time with you
time with all of you
giving all of me to you
I can collect it all, and even though I cannot bottle and keep you
this is what will make all the difference.
In our future
in yours
in your decisions
in each choice
you will think of us
and our time
and what it all meant to you.

I will collect and keep your story.
I will collect and keep your memories.
I will collect and keep your precious moments with us.
I will collect and keep what shaped you.
I will collect and keep what made you glorious you.

Stop.
