Images Of Yesterday And Tomorrow - Poem by Bruce Horaz

The images of yesterday cling to my mind.
Would the pain of yesterday ever go away?
I keep seeing images of a sunken ship
Steadily sinking into the sea.
There lying on the deck are men crying in pain.
Soon the sea swallows them up in the bay.
The first rays of the sun is starting to shine.
Could it be that this is the start
Of a different life for me to see.
I keep seeing it off in a diffused light --
Tomorrow is coming, I can feel it!
I'm a different, more confident person
Without the baggage of yesterday to carry.
I'm on the deck of my ship -- the flag is waving in the breeze
My love is beside me for all to see --
Is it destiny or is it a mirage?
