Not yet

Please

Wait

I'm not done;

I'm unfinished.

The room is too cold

The bed too warm

Please

Not yet

A few more minutes

Please

My hair needs brushing

One more glance in the mirror

Just a little longer

I'm not quite ready

Please don't hurry me

I saw him

I fell

It hurts

I think it's broken

Just a little longer

A few moments more

I'm nearly ready

I need to hug my teddy bear again

Almost set

One more look around

Then I'll be done

I promise

I just want to smell the fading roses

That are turning brown on my dresser.

Once more I want to watch the sun melt into the fiery sky.
