A YEAR AGO I DIED, TODAY I HAVE LIFE

A YEAR AGO I DIED,

TODAY I HAVE LIFE

Tomorrow does not know me, yesterday does not care,

Today I’m alive!, today I have life, dreaming of another day.

A year ago Is gone, a day when I did die, Inside no breath,

Smothered was this man, the air was taken from me.

Where, oh! where have I gone when I lost my way,

Only dreams’ show me the story of those days’ a year ago.

Today I have life, a new and different time this must be,

Lessons’ learned, taught by he whom makes these mistakes.

A year ago I died, today I have life, memories and tears of lonely cries,

A ghost, a shadow exists’ around me, still, a presence finds’ me.

  1. Such an excellent piece!!! Love the play the topic of “Yesterday is dead and gone, and tomorrow’s out of sight, and it’s sad to be alone, help me make it through the night”. I love works on Now and the interplay with the past and the future. Bravo!!!!
