Peeking around the corner
The day slowly dies
Where I stand
The horizon mist
Swirls in mystery

Watching from a distance
My memory lingers
Shapes and colors
Define the moments
But they don’t define me

Past whispers wisdom
As Present smiles
Future a mirage
A stone in the path
I carry with me

You said “Let go”.
While I tried to hold on
You said “Soon”.
And I wanted now
It all slipped away

Into words I said
This resolution
Into words I could believe
If I listened
You could hear

Next year swirls
In the forests and rivers
Oceans and seas
I can’t capture
She somehow sees

This resolution
Knew better than me.
