Midnight

Rating: 5.0
It was just as the clock struck midnight that I realised another day had passed,
Had my life just become a lifetime of yesterdays, perhaps it had,
As the old clock finished striking and the sound of the bells faded from my ears
I had the feeling that tomorrow would never be within my sight,
It suddenly came to me that yesterday was time that no longer existed,
apart from in the depths of my mind, and was something that could never be changed,
Tomorrow was too far ahead for me to think about,
And it never came anyway because at the stroke of midnight it became today,
How could I have been so blind and not realise what the bells had been telling me,
That in reality my whole life had been a series of todays,
And just like the bells of that old clock my days were fading away,
Where did the sound of those bells go once they had faded?
Where do all my today’s go once they have faded away?
Is there some distant place that we will meet again?
Perhaps somewhere beyond my imagination to some unknown place,
In my wildest dreams I dare not think beyond today and the sound of those bells,
How can the decisions and choices I make today affect tomorrow?
Tomorrow the day that never comes, apart from in my mind,
For now I think it’s safer that I just live for all my today’s,
And leave the yesterdays to those with regrets and good memories,
The tomorrows I’ll leave to the dreamers of dreams,
Dong, dong, dong the bells chime and it’s midnight once again,
Today is becoming yesterday once more, and tomorrow is just as far away,
On the twelfth stroke of the bell, it suddenly became today once more,
And as it faded away so did another day in my life,
The Mowjo
