look ahead

please don't think that i don't see you standing
please don't loose hope or let it depend on me
i've heard words confess but i have not yet seen
all that i saw from them was broken dreams
you're building something stronger here
something that will transcend the fears
something to last decades, not just years
if you've got them, wipe away the tears
please don't try to look too far ahead
and don't simply dwell on what's put to bed
time is time for past and then
making the nows is how futures depend
