“ The Gift Of A Day ” ~ tells of being alive ~

Yesterday

Be a kind of guide

Told of being alive…

 

Today

Fate made to give,

That I derive

The gift of a day,

An extended stay

Held staying alive…

 

Tomorrow

Will be

If I survive,

So I’ve no mind

And far less time

For such concern,

That mayn’t arrive…

 

Thus the morrows

I’ll choose each so,

As tho a lifetime                                            

That I’ve yet to live !

“ Another Yesterday ” ~ too soon ~

 

Ah yesterday,

You’re there

Once more

Too soon,

Before the day

Has barely gone,

The while I want

For just a bit

To carry on,

Before day’s end,

Tho I should fuss

To turn the clock

It pays no mind

My want expend,

That I might find

How best to give,

A full share’s worth,

Of I’ve to live

And well before

I’m made to taste,

Another yesterday!
