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

      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.

      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..

      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.

      "Life was a thousand years not thirty-

      And everything was possible to those that believe"

      these lines are very true.
