Perspectives of Life and Time
© By James E. Tate

To think of yesterday
Is to improve today
And enrich tomorrow.
To think of tomorrow
Is to hone our plans for future life.

But what is life?
Is it not the present?
Is it not today?
Is it not now?

We cannot change yesterday, it is past.
We find that tomorrow is elusive, it never comes.
But we have today.
We have the present!

Let us balance the experience of yesterday
With the hopes of tomorrow,
And live such today
We will cherish its memories tomorrow.
