We spend to much time thinking of what might have been. We spend to much time worrying over what might come to be. We should spend more time living today, right now and with passion to live.

Yesterday I was just a child at play.

I lived in the joys of fantasy day after day.

But yesterday was limited to a very short childhood.

Sometimes I wish I would go back if only I could.

However it is now today, looking forward to tomorrow

Will it bring joy or will it spread much sorrow.

Who can say what tomorrow will bring

So I thank God for yesterday and today I will sing

Praises to he who gives life sublime.

He has control over all things, even old father time.

Yesterday has given me wonderful memories so sweet

I will treasure them and as for today I will meet

Every challenge with the best that I can give

I will let tomorrow come tomorrow for it is today that I live.

I could not change yesterday so I will not dwell on things that might have been.

I will live today as if life were beginning again.

Tomorrow will come and with it I know

That today will have become another yesterday, it will soon leave to go

And thus become one more memory for me

Tomorrow will be today and then I will see

What tomorrow holds in store but right I won’t dwell

On its hopes or its fears be it Heaven or Hell!

God will be there just as he is here today

So I will cling to his love which I know was here yesterday.

Another nice poem, Lew. There're so many ways of engaging yesterday, today, and tomorrow...I always say, tomorrow never's always today or yesterday...oh, well! You're right, God will be there today and tomorrow as He was yesterday. Enjoyed the poem!

God Bless

Do you know there is a plant (tree) named today-yesterday-tomorrow - It has three different flowers (roses) one white, one purple and pink. It is a lovely tree--my neighbor has several . There is also a tree (lg) called an orchard tree. Very Very beautiful and it grows at the home of the Christan Brothers in my city. Me I don't worry--I'm like Patin's duck - I don't give a quack Ha Ha

Great message here, I agree, and you put alot of meaning into tight lines, which is really good.
