today

a river by anelephantcant

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

today

all through my life I feel the same
yesterday lasts for far too long
tomorrow probably never appears
it is not only today that is wrong

a week can be a long slow ache
a year is often too short
a day at a time is the lesson I learn
and each heartbreak needs to be taught

a love blossoms in a moment
like the snow-flake on Rabbie’s river
and brings not only memories
but a pain that lasts forever

every second brings another thought
every beat I hear the blues
the sounds of sadness filter through
leaving me ever more confused

every month I plan to start afresh
I know my calendar is outdated
for one minute I think I see the truth
life becomes more complicated

all through my life I feel the same
yesterday lasts for far too long
tomorrow probably never occurs
today is the day I always get wrong
