Until Those Tomorrows Came - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When I was a child,
I use to play.
But I grew up...
And left those days.

When I matured,
I learned to pray.
I needed...
To be more brave!

I've had my heroes all around.
And dreamed to make them proud,
Of me.
And do good deeds.

I remember watching them.
Each step they took,
I followed.
And borrowed,
Until...
Those tomorrows came.

When I was a child,
I use to play.
But I grew up...
And left those days.

When I matured,
I learned to pray.
I needed...
To be more brave!

I've had my heroes all around.
And dreamed to make them proud,
Of me.
And do good deeds.

Each step they took,
I followed.
And borrowed,
Until...
Those tomorrows came.

When I matured,
I learned to pray.
I needed...
To be more brave!
Until...
Those tomorrows came.

I needed,
To be more brave!
Until...
Those tomorrows came.

Until...
Those tomorrows came.

Those tomorrows,
Came!
