The New Day

Did yesterday pass without your smile,
Nor a kind word did you speak?
Did you list all your troubles inside your mind,
And harbor them there for a week?

Did you frown on a child or a neighbor next door,
Who cheerfully acknowledged 'Good Day?'
Or did you bite your lip to hold your tongue,
When you couldn't have things your way?

Well that was Yesterday and with its passing,
You can relax and begin once more
For today is the day,  the past,
Has flown out your Welcome door!

So smile today and plan tomorrow,
To smile on all todays,
For 'tis youth which flees with a horrid frown,
But remains with a smile, Always!

    Yours is truly wise advice, Judy! Worrying about yesterday will get us nowhere; let's make the most of our tomorrows. ~ May I take this opportunity to thank you for placing me so high in your Footle contest! Warm regards...and a lovely smile to you too:) paul

    How wise you are Judy and the ending is so lovely and uplifting:-)In my first office job I used to have to take the mail to the post office, one day i was delayed and was standing in a queue behind a really tall man - the guy behind the counter turned to his colleague and said ... where is she' shes not been in ... the elfin one who is always smiling' ... he blushed scarlet when the tall guy moved and his colleague said ' there she is' :-) hugs jan xx
