July 14

Sometimes the now stands
in such a stark contrast to the past
The same number on the calendar
The same summer day
but a bright shining sun,
fireworks in the sky,
eyes that sparkled
when they met back then

And it’s cloudy and grey,
it’s raining today,
outside and inside of me
While my eyes restlessly
seek yours

Though there’s a knowing
there’s a feeling
that the sun from back then
is still there behind the clouds
and is strong enough
to beam its light
onto the future
