You Were Today

“Rise and Fall” by Gordon Mitchell.

You were today.

Your eyes were the sunrise.

Your lips were a cat tiptoeing across the sheets.

Your cheeks were breakfast.

 

This is what you mean to me.

You are the gravity that pulls me together.

You are the consciousness that keeps me breathing.

 

You were today.

Your arms were flowers reaching for light.

Your voice was a song that kept me humming.

Your hair was the sunset.

 

This is what you mean to me.

You are how I measure time.

You are the complement to my every action.

 

You were today.

You are now.

You will be tomorrow.

You are everything.
