 You to find me,

 In a bottle I have been placed, a message 
 That I am alive.

 You are no longer there anymore but I let you

 A thought of what you meant to me, a thought of 
 What I once meant.

 If my message gets to you, yet then again how 
 Can this possibly be,

 You are a memory from yesterday, I am a thought 
 That sails the sea.

 Time does not stop, It has no sympathy, it makes 
 What is what was,

 Life and all that's within it is reduced to memories, 
 Things of yesterday.

 Message in a bottle is what I am, If you find me 
 Take me for what I am,

 You are forever now, I am something that will 
 One day fade away.
