STOP THE CLOCK.

STOP THE CLOCK!

I want to stop time and start all over again.
Have no past with actions to explain.

Turn back the clock to a time long gone,
Where everything seemed right, and there was no wrong.

Turn off that chime. There are no hours.
Every moment that passes is ours, all ours!

Kicking at leaves, falling out of trees.
Wading through streams with trousers above the knees.

Pouring of rain, getting wet.
Soaked to the skin but we haven’t finished yet!

Getting into fights over nothing at all.
Learning that you don’t always win; sometimes you fall!

Did it matter? Was it not fun?
No one to tell us off for what we’ve done.

Always sunshine, at least that’s what it seemed.
Was that real, or was it just what we dreamed?

I want to stop time. Turn off that clock.
I don’t want to hear that tick, tick, tock!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
