Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

 

Today is the tomorrow I worried about yesterday

And today was such a lovely day,

that I wondered why I worried about today yesterday

So today I am not going to worry about tomorrow

There may not be a tomorrow anyway

So today I am going to live as if there is no tomorrow

And I am going to forget about yesterday.

Today is the tomorrow I planned for yesterday,

And nearly all my plans for today did not

plan out the way I thought they would yesterday

So today I am forgetting about tomorrow

and I will plan for today, but not too strenuously

Today I will stop to smell a rose

I will tell a loved one how much I love her

I will stop planning for tomorrow

and plan to make today the best day of my life.

Today is the tomorrow I was afraid of yesterday

And today was nothing to be afraid of

So today I will banish fear of the unknown

I will embrace the unknown as

a learning experience full of exciting opportunities

Today, unlike yesterday I will not fear tomorrow.

Today is the tomorrow I dreamed about yesterday

And some of the dreams I dreamt about yesterday

came true today

So today I am going to continue dreaming about

 tomorrow

And perhaps more of the dreams

I dream today will come true tomorrow.

Today is the tomorrow I set goals for yesterday

And I reached some of those goals today

So today I am going to set

slightly higher goals for today and tomorrow

And if tomorrow turns out to be like today

I will certainly reach all of my goals, one day!
