Another day has slipped right by,
taking with it a tearful sigh.
Regrets were stuck in hearts and minds,
allowing guilts the drive to guide.

Time fell away with every breath,
reliving thoughts choked goals to death,
good fortune seemed impossible,
forgiveness so improbable .

A moment visits, just to fade,
never to change a choice once made,
while split decisions ricochet,
connections simply break away.

Within a blink years disappear,
seasons show up then swiftly clear.
Yesterday forms a long staircase,
today becomes tomorrows base.

Sunrise carries bright new dawnings,
potentials serve as grand awnings.
Euphoric dances pump the heart,
possible joy ignites then starts.

Fluorescent skies capture big dreams,
hours swim through warm serene streams.
Minutes fly in the breeze above,
whistle songs of infinite love.
