How many ways to say

Poetry time
“Don’t stay up too late”
She says

On instinct I reply 
“I won’t”
But I will
 
She’s been saying this since I was in 6th grade
The first impulse a rush of annoyance
And yet..
 
Another part of me
A part that has tasted just enough of life
Of Endings
Changing and becomings
 
Knows that nothing can last forever
And I am grateful
For these words
How many ways to say I love you 
Without saying I love you 
Time please stop sliding through my fingers so fast
