Lost

 

Tomorrow is an empty promise

Broken every day

Tomorrow flashes broken hope,

And sings a siren’s song

 

Lost souls flock to tomorrow,

Clinging onto childhood dreams

And yet their dreams are thrown aside

Tomorrow after tomorrow after tomorrow

 

Life escapes their desperate clutches

Leaving them empty,

A rose without a thorn

A heart without a soul

 

They are walking on a path to nowhere

Yearning for tomorrow

When morning comes they realize

Tomorrow never came

 

And so they drift along

An empty life spent watching

Walking and watching

For a tomorrow that never came

 

Wish

One day I made a wish

I planted it in memories

And watered it with smiles

The roots were made of silver

The blossoms dappled

With ev'ry hue of joy

And when the wish began to wilt?

I simply plucked the blooms,

And wore them in my hair

When only a single petal remained,

A new shoot grew

For if you truly want them,

Wishes are forever
