Here For Another Day
by Siberia

Note: These verses appeared to me after I had bumped into my teacher, whom I haven't seen in five months.


Lady Destiny had once proclaimed
That our time should come to an end
And although I knew almost nothing
Could chip away at Her firm resolve
I prayed to the Queen day and night
Begging Her for some brief respite

She has granted me this one wish
And against the laws of probability
Destiny has permitted you to stay
To be my guide for one more day
I shall relish every precious second
Learning from you all that I can

Though you won't remain here for long
It's more than I could ever dream of
I'm eternally thankful for Her small gift
And perhaps, as the sunlight is fading
The Lady will be merciful, and decide
That you should always be by my side
