Mind the Gap

Business, art, or precious dreams

All legacies diminished

When tasks mundane

Take center stage

We live a life unfinished

 

Scarlet’s words an empty vow

Drenched in pain and sorrow

The best laid plans

A pile of ash

When there’s no tomorrow

 

Each day’s vault has double doors

Take care to shut them tight

Back door past

And future front

Both foes to dawn’s pure light
