When yesterday came in through my window
it sang a song at the threshold of memories
like an inebriated man, offering delicacies at
the table it did claim
I tasted vinegar.
Through the stillness of the night,
hear I the footsteps of my dreams wade down
the lane in my heart unseen and though the
bell at the door jingles and mingles with the
rhythm in the atmosphere I stand as no man
for any man's will.
Morrow is no bearer of yesterday's infidelity
ask me no questions till the light
shines thru' this darkness hovering still.
no tears have I neither fears to offer
bring me epistles of hope, I'll read at the lawn
Though changes abound everyday
its fate no dominion have over my faith
you say I smile? I breathe life.
look into my eyes looking high above
you'll see stars in them cos I see greatness.
