Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Tomorrow Came
 





Tomorrow came,
with a squirt of sunshine,
and some dew, ordinarily...almost
with its trademark, freshly whipped skies,
night-cleansed breeze,
with its paintbrush always dipped
in the season’s colours,

tomorrow came,
like a hand-arranged bouquet,
from a secret admirer,
with a gentle knock & agile footsteps,
with the splash of many surprises,
with the tanginess...of all things new,

it came clothed in promises,
& bejewelled in hope, drenched...
In the scent of sanguinity,
with the glow of revelations,
moments playing...the flute of opportunities,
of new beginnings, bringing along
...a buzzing, under my fingernails,

sometimes it came with much fanfare,
sometimes, with mute tears,
standing ahead like old folks,
waiting to be embraced,

but tomorrow came...like it always does,
with the briefness of a sigh,
with the silky, slippery tiptoe of rain
with the temporary warmth...of held hands,

like a charming bird upon the porch
that I know...will soon fly away

it came bursting...out of time’s cocoon...
melting...into everything...
that once belonged to today,

selfishly replacing
the passing grandeur of the present
with its own

...with the superficial magic
of summer romances,

Tomorrow came,
With the illusion of today,
Even more fleeting than yesterday,

with the ephemera of life itself

It came,
like it always comes,
And went...like it’s always gone,

like a favourite song in its final seconds
Tomorrow came, and left
Leaving nothing...

Nothing...

but a familiar....
lingering...sense of loss behind.
