Just a thought for your weekend. Have a great one!
The Phantom Tomorrow
Tomorrow is the phantom
that we all chase today
but, the only piece of life we own
is in our yesterdays.
Today was once tomorrow
until it passed away
and yesterday embraced it
as all, those other days.
For the phantom that is tomorrow
rests not in coming weeks
but may be right behind you
if you’ll listen to it speak.
No, the phantom that’s tomorrow
will not live the coming week
but, if you treat today most wisely
then more yesterdays, you’ll seek.
