Poetry Sunday~Yesterday,Today, Tomorrow

"My soul faints with longing for your salvation, but I have put my hope in your word."
Psalm 119:81
***
Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
(c) Joni Zipp

All our yesterdays have
drifted to the wind
that swept through the days
where new ones begin.

Our tomorrows are all
under the cover of shade
that sifts through nights
without any aid.

Our tomorrows are yesterdays
that happened you see
gone in the dust
and will never be.

Our today's we have,
what we know in the present
enjoy the today
always making it pleasant.

For within our yesterdays
we live in tomorrow
each day we rise to
nothing but sorrow.

Live for the moment
before it is gone
in the blink of an eye
the curtains are drawn.
