Life is but a Dream: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Yesterday was lived;
We were all there, with the tiny shoes that we cannot wear anymore now;
With the mother whose home is not our home anymore now;
With the teacher we love or fear;
With all the deeds, the fashion and style, the places, the people, and the things or objects we used to possess and enjoy.
We just leave them behind with the passing of time, with growth and mobility that life demands us or expects us.
Yesterday was lived and I have no regrets.
I count my blessings and thank the Great Intelligence for the life I enjoy today;
Today is the fulfillment of the dream I dreamed yesterday;
And because I am alive, I continue to dream;
My dream for tomorrow will be my today as time passes by;
Hence in my dream, I create my "today" for the kind of life I will have in my tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be my today
How I dream and what dreams I have today will be my life in my tomorrow.
Life is but a dream
Without the dream life has no direction and there is nothing to hope for;
Without the dream, life is not life at all, it's just mere existence;
And there will not be a today in our tomorrow;
And we don't even have a "today".
Did you live yesterday? If yes, then you live your "today".
Yesterday is but a dream gone, today is a dream-creation for the kind of tomorrow that we dream of.
