Clouds of smoke surround us both

when we rise
they part for us
when we sit
they engulf us again

to fear it
is a mistake
but to tranquil in it
is a mistake nonetheless

we watched the clouds for a while
adding more
when they started getting sparse
then left
never to talk again.

Live for today, love for tomorrow, and laugh at all your yesterdays. Never regret the past, always hope for the future, and cherish every moment you have.
