Yesterday, today and tomorrow

Yesterday is gone

Tomorrow is yet to arrive

Today is all we have in our hands

If I waste my today in regrets about yesterday

On in worrying about what tomorrow might bring

I would have wasted the gift of today

Let the past and the future take care of themselves

I will just live in today and savor this moment

  1. Great poem, Sadje! I love this subject/topic – we only get to live in the here and now – today!!!
    It seems to be a very important and popular topic. Bellissimo!!!

    You might like Kris Kristofferson’s take on it in his song – Help Me Make It Through The Night!

    “yesterday is dead and gone, and tomorrow’s out of sight, and it’s sad to be alone, help me make it through the night”
