Posted to the Open Link Night on dVerse Poets. Focus on today before we get too wrapped up in resolutions for tomorrow. A short and simple offering.


When tomorrow passes and
We long for each other more
Than today –
We shall smile at our yesterdays
And believe in love.
But, should we be denied tomorrow,
Let us sit hand in hand and
Enjoy today –
Smile at me as we forget yesterday
And believe in love.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
