Tear Past Tomorrow (poem)

Updated on January 20, 2014

A tear past tomorrow is waiting for me

Past nights without dreams its path sets me free

A promise which strains the course which I see

The death of my Joy my grim destiny


Each heartbeat each breath is her memory

Each kiss of the dawn are things that won’t be

The whisper of tear to free me from pain

She waits beyond time and this misery


I wrestle with truth or mad fantasy

I cry to my soul to help make things plain

But on went the voice with morbid refrain

A river a tide an unruly sea


Give me a reason some will to sustain

Is death blessing’s answer to all of this strain

Does final surrender my always regain

Or will all this cross my eternity


But there rose a feeling no words could explain

The Joys of a past now I must maintain

The richness the treasure each thrill to sustain

If tear past tomorrow with meaning shall reign

      Martin, This was a sad, mournful poem. I understand from comments left here and there that you are struggling with health issues and experienced a deep loss. I hope your health is okay and you are taking care of yourself. I'm sure you must deeply miss her.

      We do have memories of joys in the past, but there are joys to look forward to in the future, as well. Lovely poem.
