Tomorrow Waits For You

Tomorrow Waits For You

A Poem by Lyingwithlions

Wait not for tomorrow, 
For tomorrow waits for you 
Today should hold no sorrows 
Ought be left in yesterday 

Wait not for tomorrow 
For tomorrow waits for you 
Thus should be no wish to borrow 
Then not repay yesterday 

Tomorrow holds for you 
A yesterdays tomorrow 
Here and now with-in today 
No longer awaiting you! 

Wait not for tomorrow, 
For tomorrow waits for you 
Where there's love enough, 
Thus we pray for today    

Yesterday's tomorrow, 
Today's tomorrow to be 
Still waiting for you and me 
We need not wait for it .... 

Today belongs to us now 
May we all Live it, 
Like it to be
our last.....

I think it's good to plan for the future but we can't live in it, or we miss out on today.

I agree my friend.
"Today belongs to us now
May we Live it,
like it could be,
our last..... "
Great wisdom in the outstanding poetry. Old wise saying. "Live today like it is your last day of life. Tomorrow isn't guaranteed."
