Life is but a Dream: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Updated on August 4, 2012


Yesterday


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.


Today

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


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.

      Thank you so much whonunuwho for dropping by and for your valuable comment.

      Yes, even to dream and to imagine the life that we so desire for ourselves is by itself living our own individual potentials to create...and creativity is dynamic; alive.

      Nice work, and yes, dreaming is a very important part of everyone's life. Without our dreams and imaginations we would be a sad lot, and are we not so very grateful that we do have our dreams.
