Tomorrow

i don’t want today to be about yesterday
i want more than memories
i want futures
hope
vision
options

when today is about tomorrow it brings life

when all i have already has been
what is left?

there is one thing
memory
provides
that sets the table for
tomorrow

gratitude

for each moment
and person
and shared care

there is another thing
that lurks behind gratitude

loss

and sadness
and mortality
and endings

being grateful for something means
it has already happened

someone needs to teach me
to mix before
and now
with what will come
so i can sink my teeth
into tomorrow
so that what is no longer
doesn’t keep me stuck
remembering that
yesterday
has ended
and today is ending
