"Final Curtain"

Eric Selorio 1948 (Zamboanga)



" Final Curtain "


Reaching the final stride
There is nothing left to hide
Dreams are no longer reality
It's just plain ashes of old fantasy

Shadows of the yester years
Bring joys yet often bring tears
Images of what it was
Just blurry pictures of the past

The final stage is all now set
The ending is no longer a threat
So play the role as it should be
Till the curtains fall permanently

With a smile, wave farewell
For no more stories there is to tell
Only memoirs of glory and pain
Of what's left behind the final curtain
