Tomorrow never comes

Tomorrow never comes Lost in the memories of yesterday Glories of triumphs bygone Reveries intermittently broken As pains from the boo-boos of yore Break through to the fore From their sepulchres Deep, at the back of my mind Where I'd had them entombed. Yo-yoing between emotions; Pleasant and afflictive In self-motivation I cultivate amendatory measures for your arrival Till the sun is swallowed By the open-mouthed horizon And the ensuing darkness Overcome by a golden lunar luminescence. With a smile, I drift into a slumber. In you I see a glimmer Hope, far away on the horizon That at the passing of today You will ease the pain of yesterday But again, I wake Only to meet another 'today' As always, you never came.

Thriving fixation is what life owes. 'Life does not serve you what you want,you dish from her anything you want".

Thanks Adeyemi for your comment. Indeed, in life you can only make the best you can of today (everyday is a today).
