Walking Backwards

If somewhere in this chaos,
There’s an unwritten plan,
Chasing a logical pattern,
It’s in illogical hands.

We are busy walking backwards,
To the place, we’re headed for,
And our future it was written,
Before we were born.

So let’s write a different tune,
And save it for tomorrow,
It will be yesterday’s song,
But maybe the sun will shine.

Retracing histories,
Like footprints in the sand,
The tide will wash them away,
With each passing day.

A visit, to the past,
Old notes and photographs,
Days you keep in a picture frame,
From a time, you cannot name.

Till the only constant truth,
Is in the outline of your face,
I can’t remember all these places,
Or my being there at all.

So let’s write a different tune,
And save it for tomorrow,
It will be yesterday’s song,
But maybe the sun will shine.
