Dream not.

I was on the phone today with an old friend and we were discussing living in the moment. It put me in mind a poem I had written in 2012. I had a look at and decided I needed to rewrite it. If you would like a look at the original it is here.

Dream not of today

That is what the wise men say

Fear not for yesterday it is gone

Taking what you should of done,

Like a thief it made off at a run.

Dream not of today

Waste not your time on dreams

Be quick make fast your schemes.

Reach not too hard into the future

It’s not yet come,

Don’t waste time on things

You can’t know, nor will be done.

Dream not of today

It is not here to stay.

Hold not on to that which cannot last

These things end up in the past

Run your best!

You will fail like the rest.

You can not out run time

It’s part of the plan sublime.

Dream not of today.

Don’t let your life slip away.

Chase each and every chance

Sing, love, be honest and dance.
