Days of future past (193 words = 390-197)
It's going to be a long drag-my-ass day. I can feel it already. An extra pot of coffee may be needed. Dawn is a feeling? No. Dawn is my cousin. I called her Sunday morning in tears. I should've heeded her and stayed home to watch old movies. But no. I'm no longer a child like I told her at a family picnic long time ago.

A thousand dandelions were blooming and no one was threatening to kill them. Her children played oblivious to the storms looming beyond the horizon. I thought they have no future. Dawn read my thoughts. "They have no fear. I refuse to ruin their day. May this troubled time pass; may peace reign for a thousand years. Don't you smell the grass. Don't you smell the flowers? You used to."

Yes, I used to. Freshly mown grass sprinkled with dew as I delivered papers house to house. I had memorized the route until it became background music to the harmony inside me. I would open my mind to the morning's melody and sing as if no one would hear. I didn't care.

I didn't have a care.

[Verse 1: Justin Hayward]
Dawn is a feeling, a beautiful ceiling
The smell of grass just makes you pass into a dream
You're here today, no future fears
This day will last a thousand years, if you want it to

[Verse 2: Justin Hayward]
You look around you, things they astound you
So breathe in deep, you're not asleep open your mind.
You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years, if you want it to

[Bridge: Mike Pinder]
Do you understand that all over this land there's a feeling?
In minds far and near, things are becoming clear with a meaning

[Verse 3: Justin Hayward]
Now that you're knowing, pleasure starts flowing
Its true life flies, faster than eyes could ever see
You're here today, no future fears
This day will last a thousand years, if you want it to
