'Faces In The Light' - Poem by Matthew (Personal)

Tomorrow will always be Tomorrow,
Yesterday always Yesterday.
These are the two days,
We will never catch.
But if we could go to yesterday,
Some would Say Goodbyes,
To the friends they have lost.
Some would stop theirselves,
Before they began to hurt themselves.
And the Life that is gone today,
Would be back again tomorrow.
And if we found a way to tomorrow,
Nothing would be the same.
If we all could just see,
All the faces in the light,
We would want everything
To be just the same.
We would all want,
Our friends to stay, were they lay.
We all would be happy,
Because the friends,
That we once loved,
Are in a happy place.
I wouldnt try to stop them,
When I heard their names from above.
because I know that,
Their going to a place,
That I will one day be.
In a happy place,
With no darkness at all.
