Poem : Tomorrow!

“Tomorrow”


My mother told me many years ago

Never put off for tomorrow

That which I can do today


***********



Mother I have found this to be pure wisdom

That tomorrow I may not even be around

Today's music truly carries the best sound


***********


All we can ever claim is now, this moment

As I heard this saying that wise men say

That a promise is only comfort to a fool .


*********

Thanks for reading phdast7 and for such a beautiful comment. that's favorable to parents and in acknowledgement of the job they have done , It takes a great understanding, and unselfish type of child,

so I all in .

It's very important , to show them in all the ways that we can, that we really do understand what they have done , and in most cases , unselfishly and to the very best of their ability.

I am so joyous to know that folks like yourself, shares such wonderful feelings and sentiments.

Till we write again, I remain, a very proud son.

Thank you so much.

Bless.

Good poem and great advice from your Mother. Our parents were almost always right, even though we didn't always want to listen when we were young. Waht patience they must have needed. :)

Thanks V, and for such and understanding comment.

I don't think we usually get it clearly, in our youthful days . So because we have no boby else to get angry at , we get angry at our parents, no body else to frown at , we frown at out parents ,were we at all thinking , because our parents are our Gods, but we always come back to learn and love them more, well I did pretty early.

Sincere thanks for reading and as always your beautiful comments.

Bless.
