Yesterday, Tomorrow, Today.

Those memories of love and wonder

That were there in our lives,

Showing us that

As long as we have memories,

Yesterday remains.


We look ahead in our lives

Dreaming of what might be,

Showing us that

As long as we have hope,

Tomorrow awaits.


We awake in this day

Knowing that love is around us,

Showing us that

As long as we have loved,

Today is beautiful.

      "Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday."

      Bags packed, horse freshly shoed - ready to go.

      I guess that is just what love teaches us. And I agree wholeheartedly.

        I definately believe everything that has been said in this poem dear Andy, thank you. it is a stong belief of mine because I have always followed my dreams and i feel so content and like I am where i want to be, even when i have days of misery. We should never give up and we should always believe that in those moments of misery "which we all have" it will be leveled also with the good and the great. believing in ourselves and believing that we can find our own happiness we can infact change our own destiny, is a magnificent tool to own and i love this poem. Thank you.

          A beautiful uplifting read. Thank you for sharing your wonderful pen and your great choice of video. Hauser is one of my favorites. I will never forget his rendition of ‘O Sole Mio’ he performed in Capri.

            How wise these lines on how to look at the three times and find they are each offering love. Must have this one in my list of faves dear Andy and thank you.
