A lifetime ago Just Yesterday

It was a lifetime ago...just yesterday, when rain fell softly upon my face. That spoke to me of younger years, with all my innocence thus encased. I could feel the rainbow...just out of reach, all the colors of moments passed. Where truths were lies and lies believed, countless grains in an hourglass. I can bear forth the torch...yet not burn the eyes, to scald away truth's stench and decay. Why can't we hold to the dreams of youth, that was a lifetime ago...just yesterday?
