Tomorrow – Bonnie Cheuk

What will it bring? 

Bonnie is from London, UK. She writes poetry to complement her piano playing as a way of expressing unspoken thoughts and feelings. Her writing takes inspiration from personal experiences coupled with creative depiction of stories that derive from imagination. The fragility of life and the expanse of astronomy are themes she likes to include throughout her work. 

A little bit about the poem – Tomorrow: 
It was written as part of a three-part poem (Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow) and is about looking forward to Tomorrow and what it will bring, whilst remembering and reminiscing a loved one who has gone to the skies. 

TOMORROW [明天]

Tomorrow 

What will it bring? 

Will songbirds still sing?

Maybe a change in human nature

Discovery of a new creature

Let us write historical scripture 

For tomorrow and our future

Can you still hear me talking?

In times of lonesome walking

I wish you were still here

To wipe away today’s tears

Yesterday was difficult 

It brought me to a halt 

A time capsule is what I need 

To plant more memory seeds

I don’t want them to fade 

Willing to put tomorrow up for trade

Just to see you once again.
