14 March 2008


It was the last day
yet even then it wasn’t the end –
more of a chapter’s closure,
a diminuendo.

A respectful pause in events
to observe the break in routine,
or was it part of the routine?
We’ll never know.

Today began as it does, never leads
always follows and now we know
the end was a yesterday and
there’s always tomorrow.
