Time Will Tell

Streaking down my eyes
Quite tears of night;
In desolation and solitude,
Furtively waited a hostility
In the plane of heart
Two hearts have dwindled to one;
Alone I stand, sing, and dance

My promises are what I can fulfill!
My words are those I can keep!
A question lingers in my heart;
Is the possibility of meeting you again.
When speech is within my reach,
I need not the tongue.
I never search for eyes
Because vision lies within my heart.
Today at my hands
I ignore the past.

I do not shed tears to pity myself
Neither regrets nor remorse I feel
No sentimental about the past
Or caring about what is right or wrong
Bygones I let be bygones
No sign or feeling of sadness
I will only know where we stand
When we meet and see again
But maybe or maybe not
Only time will tell it all

A freedom I required of you
From this day dream of mine
My laugh and my cry
Powers are they to my sympathy
My tears I cannot hold back
That I must forget you to go on
I will only know where we stand
When we meet and see again
But maybe or maybe not
Only time will tell it all
If you are meant for me and I for you
Only time will tell it all

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
