What Tomorrow Brings

I wrote this poem last year when life was looking tough with all of the covid news etc.  Well, it is back in the news again and I thought it would be good to remind ourselves that everything will be OK.  We all have so much to look forward to.  Keep smiling everybody.

What Tomorrow Brings

Tomorrow brings hope of unfulfilled dreams
Of walking through valleys and paddling through streams.
Adventure aplenty, excitement galore
A whole host of mysteries yet to explore.

Tomorrow brings love and good times to share
Random acts of kindness to show that you care.
Spending times with loved ones, a special treat
Long conversations with folk you’re yet to meet.

Tomorrow brings challenges, some great and some small
Unwritten scenarios we knew nothing of at all.
The script is unknown, full of joy love and grief
The challenge surmountable if we just have belief.

Tomorrow brings seasons and memories to treasure
Sharing our lives with others, the ultimate pleasure.
Unsprung flowers will bloom and grow
A flurry of seasons bringing rain, shine and snow.

Tomorrow brings thanks for the lives that we live
Appreciation for each other, the ones that really give.
A world of wonder, an untold mystery
A host of feelings that will turn into history.

Tomorrow brings holidays, hard work and gain
Some days so appealing, others filled with pain.
Snuggly chats in coffee shops, acceptance and rejection
A multitude of emotions all leading to reflection.

Most importantly of all, tomorrow brings hope
Of a life filled with happiness and an ability to cope.
Relish every moment, savour every treat
When tomorrow is gone may your life feel complete.
