The moments we spend together for us two

 Are priceless and precious, but oh so few


 For being with you is of the utmost matter

 But like leaves in the wind our time is so scattered


 So busy are our nights and days

 To everything and everyone else does time we pay


 With our lives so full of it's daily grind

 So lost is the time together we find


 And as we drift further and further apart

 My greatest fear is that I'm losing your heart


 It would be so kind

 If we could just find

 Some moments in time

 For our hearts to again bind

 And it will serve to remind

 That we still have each others love in mind


 And after one long, hard day

 I come to you and say

 "Honey, let's just steal away"

 To our private place of play

 For the rest of today"

 Once there we will lovingly stay


 And as dusk approaches, so goes the light

 As we steal away, like thieves in the night


 It doesn't matter where we go

 For as long as I'm with you it's joy I will know


 We'll forget our "other life" with its worries and cares

 And spend this time together to lay our souls bare


 With our hearts in each others hands

 We now enter into our secret wonderland


       For now we have stolen away


 To a place where "they" can't touch us

 Where two hearts beat as one

 Where by space and time we are no longer bound

 Where our very souls combine and entwine


        Until we are now....


            As one


 Now we have stolen away like thieves in the night

 Gracefully, easily like two birds in flight


 Just like Ali Baba and the 40 thieves

 We too have stolen as we please


 For these moments are ours and ours alone

 To hold each other close

 To share our dreams

 Our fears

 Our cares

 Our tears

 Our rights

 Our wrongs

 Our prayers

 Our songs

 To share our love

 To make love

 To stare and wonder at the stars above

 To joke

 To laugh

 To act like the children we were in the past

 To plan

 To heal

 To once again our love seal


 Oh time, to us nothing you have lent

 For you we had to steal and away we went


 Why did you treat us so unkind

 For it was moments like these you did undermine


 You took from us one of life's greatest pleasures

 The time alone we so treasured


 But we have taken something back from you

 For the memories of this night together will see us through


 In our hearts ever so bright

 Burns the thoughts of this magical night


 This is one night I wish would never end

 As I spend this time with my lover, my best friend


 But deep in the night as the shadows have fallen

 We begin to hear slumbers unwelcome calling


 And as we sleep through this mythical night

 Content in our hearts as it felt so right


 And when morning shines it's glorious face

 We'll wake and remember stealing away to our secret place


 To the next day and the next and the next

 These moments will be the bright spot in our lives so complex


 Through these days we'll take time to reflect

 Of the night when time we did circumspect


 And to you my love these memories I'll bind

 The moments we stole away like thieves of time.

this is quite heartfelt ... to say the least ... you speak of time and space as infinitness if we allow a place to be inside its boundless and chaotic, sometimes murderous logic, yet you speak of time as a leash keeping us within a certain boundary we, in our foolishness and in being victimized in many ways by the demands of life, breaking the nature of space away from out lives and that it is the food of love, time and space as it really is and not as we choose to live it, when thoughtless and forgetful .. and so let us take ourselves back and nurture our own essence ... space and time enfolded by our one flower ... we ... love. yeah, this is a nice one.

So true that in today's busy world we must work so hard to just "see" the one we love. Life and all its little bumps can make it difficult on any couple. You did a great job on this.

I wrote this poem about a couple who are in love and want to spend some time alone together but their everyday lives are so busy. So one night they just steal away by themselves to rekindle their love. With the frantic and hectic world we live in it is so easy for us to become so caught up in the rush that we neglect our love. So this poem goes out to all those lovers whose lives are so busy that they yearn for one special night together.
