Daylight,
See the dew on the sunflower
And a rose that is fading?
Roses whither away
Like the sunflower.
I yearn to turn my face to the dawn;
I am waiting for the day.

Midnight,
Not a sound from the pavement;
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight.
The withered leaves collect at my feet,
And the wind begins to moan.

Memory,
All alone in the moonlight.
I can smile at the old days;
I was beautiful then.
I remember the time I knew what happiness was.
Let the memory live again.

Every street lamp
Seems to beat a fatalistic warning.
Someone mutters
And the street lamp gutters,
And soon it will be morning.

Daylight,
I must wait for the sunrise.
I must think of a new life,
And I musn't give in.
When the dawn comes,
Tonight will be a memory too,
And a new day will begin.

Burnt out ends of smoky days.
The stale cold smell of morning.
The street lamp dies; another night is over.
Another day is dawning.

Touch me.
It's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun.
If you touch me,
You'll understand what happiness is.

Look,
A new day has begun.

That'd be nice :) I'm almost always on AIM, so next time you're on I'll IM you if I'm actually paying attention and see you online. xD (I'm not the most alert of people)

Happy Birthday to her. She was lovely.

Gosh, do you look exactly like your father.

Thanks. She was.

Not anymore. I don't think I have a recent photo of him online, but he looks much different now.

So, wait, by, "no, not really," do you mean it didn't happen at all or that you didn't IM me? o.o;
