soothing memories

“soothing memories along the shore of reveries-
yesterdays lasting long, as tomorrow is already gone”

there shan’t be another tangerine 
sun rising in the eastern skyline-
a new day shan’t dawn,
for tonight the grains of sand 
run out and rush into the tides...
       not knowing there is no tomorrow

(if there was no tomorrow I’d be)
seeking what never was sought,
fighting what’s never been fought-
leaving behind nothing but pain,
hoping happy memories remain

farewell to all that lies ahead,
for it is time to release what
might have been
I shall live this last day as if
I never lived at all-
fear not the kismet life offers;
and as my breath slowly fades,
I shall remember what truly
mattered...

the soothing memories
along the shores of reveries,
and express my gratitude
for a wonderful life lived

Wow, Lu Loo, probably one of your best poems in my opinion... Loved how you opened it with that great quote and this probably how i would feel... if there was no tomorrow.. that last stanza, of soothing memories, but then there are those memories that are not soothing also and i think the end will be a combination of both.. Congratulations on your first place in the contest..
