Unbroken Ribbon

Time is a silken
ribbon, the past trails
behind us, the future
stretches out ahead.

Though the trailing ribbon
is unbroken, there are bits
that become obscured in mist,
others remain in vivid detail.

The ribbon that stretches
ahead, a clouded mystery,
but for brief, blurry glimpses,
perhaps dismissed as daydreams.

What becomes of
this ribbon, once our
time here ends, our
corporal lives spent?

Does it dissolve into
empty nothingness,
or stretch into infinity,
from this life into the next?
