Now and Then

I was there yesterday, now Im not
I tried to go back, but did not see it coming.
I went back further, then fell into the ditch
dirty and wet, so I got up and walked backwards
to the front of the back and on to the horizon.
It seemed so far away so I ran and tried to catch it.
then , stopped, turned around slowed down.

walking slowly towards the horizon,
and even slower, now crawling
it became clear that slowly I would continue on the journey.
