Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Drifting on to Yesterday

Mind's like precious moments
How they always slip away
Like leaves upon the water
Drifting on to yesterday

These precious water lilies
In a misty coloured sky
That flower for an instant
But eventually die

Reclining staring upwards
As I floated in the lake
The flowers fade, then vanish
As the waves begin to break

Just a sad lonely reflection
Of a painting that I knew
Like a half forgotten daydream
Curl my memories of you

As we frollicked in the shoreline
By a bubbling summer stream
Mind's like precious moments
Preserved gently in my dream

And I try to grasp the image
But it softly steps away
Like the leaves upon the water
Drifting on to yesterday...
