Yesterday's Tomorrow


The shrill beeping of the alarm clock
Tears a merciless slash
Through thickened folds of slumber
As strong wills suddenly clash

Somewhere across days worth of miles
Others are rising too
Some with groans, some with smiles
Setting the coffee to brew

I realize, with a tug of sorrow
As I gaze at dawns awesome display
How swiftly yesterday's tomorrow
Becomes today

We stand where we have never stood before
Or ever will again
On the brink of today; I open the door
God’s love comes pouring in
