Tomorrow is a Just a Headline

Updated on February 27, 2014

Tomorrow is Just a Headline

I see you there your eyes are as bright as yesterday

I try so hard to remember every line and impression on your face

You linger there then disappear again without a trace

Now tomorrow is just a headline that can never replace...


I can feel you now those eyes are staring right through me

You lean up from that bed whispering and reach-

For something I just can't see what is it your trying to tell me?

Even if I could it would be so hard to believe...


Years now have past and the memories still last

It's so strange how those moments pass

You must have lived a lifetime in those twelve days

Now tomorrow is just a headline that can never replace...


In my dreams we are just brothers again running free

Untouchable invincible every star within our reach

Life was a thousand years not thirty-

And everything was possible to those that believe


One more touch, a glance is all I would ask-

In a dream or in some other reality

I would give all I have for one more chance

To retrace every step and relive the past


I see you here your eyes are bright as yesterday

I can see every line and impression on your face

You are so near now no time or space

Tomorrow is still a headline that can never replace.


Always and forever your brother Chad

      "Life was a thousand years not thirty-

      And everything was possible to those that believe"

      these lines are very true.

      Tomorrow or today, there is nothing that can sway the actions we have yet to make.

      But by our own steady feet, whether pronounced or sweetly discreet there's a vision here that dreams left in it's wake.

      Very poetic and touching. A longing within to reach back in time - knowing inside that time is gone. Each verse stands out and enhances the message of your poem. I love it - write more..

      Chad, I can't read this one on my monitor, at least. (I see above that obviously some people can read it!) The text flows over the picture and obscures the last 4-6 words of each line. Dang.
