Fresh Daisies

Written by Efrain Nieves

A year has past,
Mnemonic inception,
Fresh as daisies growing in an open plain.

Encircling, perennial
Lasting throughout the ages.

The speeding train,
Running through our veins.

Every heartbeat calls your name.

Every moment away is a lifetime.

A year has past,
No unsettling distortions,
Fresh as daisies growing in an open plain.
