Comes the dawn

Comes the dawn,

When all the things of your yesterdays,
will mean that today is the first day,
of life’s journey for you.

Being close,
being lost,
reaching out for what seems an age.
Touching flowers,
yet not having to pick one till that dawn,
will make that final flower so wonderful to hold.

Do not fear to feel things before that dawn.
To have lived in yesterday, only makes you see,
more clearly the things you need to see.

When the time comes,
I hope that I can be within a small part,
of your yesterdays

That will make the dawn,
more beautiful,
Just for you
