The holiday’s here with a baby that’s new. Joy surrounds yet she has no clue. Though next year’s sure to be more jolly, two legs running while arms hold dolly. ~ Little hands pull fingers to rooms, giggles ensue and chatter consumes. The tour’s complete, then time to play. But that’s next year, now back to today.
Just in case I’ve nothing to say,
I’m writing tomorrow’s poem today.
Factoring for unpredictability,
it’s the future I now can see.
I love you tomorrow as I do today.
And day after day that’s what I’ll say.
The clouds clearing, the sun is felt. My icy heart has begun to melt. Love has warmed, time to grow. A kiss awaits this I know. ~ My future slumbers, I quietly rise. Starlight twinkles in my eyes. The mirror greets a smiling face. The fog’s lifted without a trace. ~ Her day will start with a hug. She’ll pull me closer, nice and snug. A plan we’ll make for another day. But in this moment we’ll always stay.
You can make a pile, I’ll make a stack. You can smile at me and I’ll smile back. I’ll boil the water, you make the tea. I’ll blow you a kiss and you blow one to me. ~ You can pop the popcorn, I’ll melt the butter. You can hold my hand and make my heartbeats flutter, I’ll choose the movie, you pick the day. The next time we’ll switch and both have our way. ~ I’ll clear the table, you clear the waste. We can share dessert, I’ll have a taste. You can say “I love you” and I’ll say it too. Then we’ll share our futures, both, me and you.
A stressful day was made by me. But better soon, just wait and see. Yesterday’s gone and today is here. The worst is over, no need to fear. ~ The intro had and all was fine. I am yours and you are mine. The love we share now is known. The pair I needed was finally grown.
Though I hope not permanent,
I’ve chosen to experiment.
A change in course is needed,
or soon to be defeated.
Continued escape or actual rest,
sleep will be my ultimate test.
Nights a daze and days are night.
Wake must I to dream what’s right.
Torn by a future unknown,
and times gone now to own,
reflections of the past have all been seen.
Death looms, the now in between.
Better days will come with the bad.
Some day’s happy, others sad.
Success or failure is for us to see.
Probing’s always costly but results free.
Charting points of worry and worth,
noted a pattern of mindset and mirth.
Positives charge with a forward flow.
Negatives draw from cycles that glow.
Graphically clear’s lines emerge.
And time’s plotting more to surge.
The future’s what we’ll become,
when the whole is the sum.
With each day we do learn,
life is more than we yearn.
Responsibilities never end,
more to share and to lend.
We give and take for others sake,
returns in kind for us to make.
Care is given when received.
Truth abounds when not deceived.
Time propels, weights constrain,
with each second the past we gain.
Hearts and minds of equal measure,
balance stacked for us to treasure.
Skies brighten and again to dim.
Stars don’t shine on a whim.
Thinking love, feeling wise,
tomorrow’s I hear are before our eyes.
