An out of focus memory from tomorrow


Written for "The Whatever Contest
Open Prompt: Write a poem 15 lines or less, Structured or Free Verse, on the topic of your choosing.



With each dawn come hopes and dreams

Of yesterdays to see

Rekindling bygone days

Of youth that shone so free


Nearness of forgotten thoughts

Lives when brought to our sight

Kept alive within our hearts

True is the inward light



Memories from tomorrow

May one day conjure tears

Lost are that which never were

Emptiness which no one hears
