ONE MORE TEAR AND THEN I’LL BE HAPPY

I’ll never be younger than today.
I’m going away.
Like you,
Yesterday.
I still remember.
But even memories decay.
Don’t they?
What were we,
What were we talking about?
You don’t say.
You don’t say anymore.
We rain,
We fall.
That’s all.
Recall, recall, recall.
I am no more,
I am no more than that,
Beneath my sleeping cat,
Beneath the sprinkling rain,
The newborn rain,
Dying upon my shelter,
Diminuendo.
(silence)
.
I forgot something just now,
God only knows what,
God only knows God.
You I knew,
I know you now,
Recall,
I will know you last,
Forever,
Never again.
But I digress.
Only this page is new,
I know,
Now.
So (silence).
.
So what is before me,
After all that?
A clump of time we will name,
A new year,
One more tear,
And then I’ll be happy.
