Slip Away

What of the future?
Why plan for what we can not see?
Why can’t we just be?
Living in the moment
       Living day to day
             While our lives slip away
                          Into sleep into peace
                                   Into the wonders of our dreams
Why must people say what they do not mean?
Why must I fake a smile?
In fear you might not want to stay awhile
Why do I have to see you turn and leave toward something neither of us can see?
                  In a flash you’ll be gone
                          Like so many before you.
                               You won’t glance back to see the ghost of your past.
