I Tell You No (Day 238)

Because I tell you no, I tell you yes. 
You only have to guess to see me smile. 
Once in a long while, you might let me down. 
I’ll come around again, though if you wait. 

Too late is not the same as yesterday. 
And now the birds have flocked, and now have flown. 
The days have grown so short, and cold, and gray. 
You say I told you no, but I said yes.
