Does it matter

?How many perfect days have passed?

I could never tell the difference

Yes, it rained last night

Did it offer me smile?

Yesterday, the robust sun came out

But my room was as dark as it was

Does it matter?
?Today, the green bush slithers

against the wall of an abandoned lot

I know not a thing is left unpainted

green, green all over, summer caressing

Does it matter, winter is coming?
?The leaping of the day can't wait

The setting sun quickly disappears

Seconds turn to hour, days to years

Does it matter, if it's too late
?I may be healed tomorrow

Or probably, not

Yet, day after day, I'll live

It all matters..
