Here Comes Tomorrow!

Today was unimaginable when we were small,
Then, the future seemed so far away;
Little did we know how quickly it would go,
The promptly disappearing day.

You recall how we youngsters longed to be grown,
But here, at this age no one wants to get old;
We rushed through a lot of living then,
Determined and eager to be rich and smart and bold.

Now with seasoned perspective we live our days,
Yet some eye the future with suspicious frown;
Sometimes insecure, amidst so many changes,
Carefully cautious when they’re feeling down.

So, pause for a moment, take time to consider
You’ve already survived challenge and sorrow;
Turn from complaining, plan for adventure,
God loves you, and here comes tomorrow.

Review the important lessons you’re learning,
Treasure the gift of life you’ve been given,
With renewed faith and prayer to the Lord
Tomorrow means one day closer to Heaven.
