what promises must I make to you
that I'll only break and feel bad
about disappointing you?
why can't we live fully in the moment
and so love in eternity?
our lives are passing rapidly
things we used to do we no longer can
despite the memories that make us think
it all happened just a second ago
why can't we live in that perspective
or have we not earned it yet
being too much in a worldly moment
that can only offer a mirage in the desert
or a mind wandering into its freezing polar moment?
