Carpe Diem


Hopefully tomorrow will be sunny,
And I’ll be there to see it beside you.
Perhaps it won’t, but I’ll still be trying.
Putting yesterday’s behind my left ear-
Your right-
I keep the other free for the
Season’s blooms – and I’ll wear them with a smile.
Cold creeps through open windows, remember.
Open up and let some air in, breathe out.
Make your bed, lay in it, but get up too
It doesn’t end here and doesn’t have to.
Now, brush your teeth, slip on shoes, time to go
Get out there. Catch the big one: Carpe Diem.
