When Time Is All We Have

Enjoy Now

The truth of the fact is all we have is today

Tomorrow is just a wish away

We often make plans and later carry them out

We make appointments and things to do lists 

 It is business as usual

One day leads to the next

They all blend together like moms meatloaf

Making one heck of one at that

Never exactly the same

But each bite is full of some new surprise

More often than not never duplicated

No matter how hard we try

But we try and try again

To make it just the way it was

Enjoying each day as if this was the only one

Until the next one replaces the old

The old day is soon forgotten

It goes into our memory and becomes like dust on the dresser

We only see it if we look close

Many times we never give it any thought

Then once in a blue moon it is time to clean

The new dust replaces the old

The old becomes just a distant memory

So if today is all we have

Why don't we love more ?

Why don't we care more ?

Why don't we help more ?

Do we think we are going to live forever and a day

That is all I have to say

Dream On

We all know it, it just doesn't always register, much less daily. You are right "Tomorrow is not guaranteed".

The muse indicates that you are much stronger then the wonder.

Today is now and now is all we have.
