Time In A Bottle - Jim Croce
These are part of the lyrics of the Jim Croce song "Time In A Bottle" which are very easy to recite as a poem.
The full lyrics and audio are here Time In A Bottle
If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
Till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you.
If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again I would spend them with you.
If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you
