Yesterday Is That Only Tomorrow



A contemplation's meditation upon today …


… 'Twas only just a dream of yesterday

— for yesterday is that only tomorrow —

a day not yet birthed as to joy or sorrow

a surprise package waiting to be unwrapped in

promise of things to come, as yet, so untapped.


Volumes could be written as to its potential of

explaining how tomorrows are so essential

and, yet, we labor ever so frantically fervently

in haste of never ceasing to waste precious time

of endeavoring to make our tomorrows today …


… Rather than simply savoring this unique day

as that one and only day of life that holds sway

before this day, as today, in slipperiness slips away

to see tomorrow as that yesterday become today

until that day upon which arrives for us …


One and all — and that without exception …


… That sorrow of no more tomorrows

but only those yesterdays of when we lived,

loved, laughed and played in time we but borrowed

— for yesterday is that only tomorrow ...
