Today

How do I move
From yesterday to today
Without losing myself in our tomorrows

An old song reverberates within my chest
Yesterday was it's very best
Within your arms today I'm blessed
When I look in your eyes I lose my breath

Tomorrow's not promised 
I know that's true
Still I feel my future is made for two
You with me and me with you

So I'll lose myself in yesterday
Tomorrow's a gift for which I'll pray
Yet the gift I'll treasure most is our today

    I'm glad Wayland eluded to this one in a recent poem :) It is beautifully succinct Richard. But you still have to tell me why you call me Tot ;)

    I thought you told me that was a nick name. Perhaps I remembered wrong *lol* it is rather adorable not unlike yourself. What name do you prefer?

    Beautiful and romantic. Each day is a priceless gift, that's why it is called the present.

    Yes, tomorrow is not assured us. That is why we need to make most of each and every day. This is coming home more and more to me as I age....opportunities missed, dreams unfulfilled....love not shared. No time for regrets...Wonderful write, Richard...as always.

    this is beautifully written Richard...I think we all need to carry the good of yesterday into the now of today because tomorrow may be too late! if only every day was as lovely as your poem :)
