TIME

by Jullie Midnight

***

Yesterday I was a sprout,

Youthful, young, taintless and unblemished.

I had nothing to worry about.

Today I'm a fresh flower,

Bright coloured, vivid, loved and cherished.

I have strenght, unlimited power...

Tomorrow... will I be just

The petal that's blown up to the sky?

Unmerciful time, can you not stop?

If only

I would never have to say "goodbye"...

I cannot make the past

Forever last.

I cannot change the present

And cannot tell the future.

The only thing I know is that today's tomorrow's yesterday.
