The Last Call


I heard a knock the other day
Was sure it came my way
I thought it was you
My soulmate true

It wasn’t you but your memories that stopped by
To make me reminisce and cry
One last time I promised myself
Before the eyes washed themselves

The sun shines brightly today
Yesterday still knocks in despair
One that I shall never answer
The past ends with the falter
