Daily missive for Monday the 27th of May.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 27th of May.

It is always too late
To beg
With less than enough tea 
In sympathy
To float a boat
Filled with the burning
Of what remains
Of goodbye
There is no return
For it has gone
The way of tomorrow
Which never comes
No matter how
We may pray
There is only now
Inhabiting the ghost
Of a yesterday
We can see as a gift
Without what was
There is never what is
Pull out a drawer
To find a memory
Fold it up, neatly
And put it back
It will be there
When you need it most
As a reminder
Of what you can become
When you remember
It is too late
For you to beg
