End of Yesterday

from Tempus by Nell James



Absolute which bears our root
Will follow to the end
The yes of all that’s coming
Is the no of all that’s been

Moving forward like a sword
Plunging through the years
The morning dew is frozen
Never wet with tears

If you’re here or if you’re there
No matter where you stand
The speed of one pound falling
Is the same if feathers or sand

Cancel out that world of doubt
As fortunes wind their way
The start of what’s tomorrow
Is the end of yesterday

Window panes and painted frames
Around these doors, below ceilings, above floors
Countless hours, endless days
Have come to none now all is said and done

In my heart this is a part
Of all I’ll ever know
But must live for tomorrow
It’s the only way I can go
