If I knew what tomorrow would bring
how would I change today?
And if yesterday were to come around again
would today be the same?

Robert,
If you could see from here to tomorrow
and know what tomorrow would bring
you'd want to attain or avoid it.
For today that could change anything.
If the past should repay you a visit
I know you could lose your today.
But today is the hope for tomorrow.
One should never let that slip away

without trying to grab it back
even though it changes today.

Ohme

Robert

I would not change the yesterdays
Nor would tommorow I would see
And one thing much more sure by far
I would not change your poetry

Gee Robert, I thought my poetry was easier to understand than that. Guess not.
Translation;

You can't change yesterday so don't live there. If you want to change tomorrow it has to be done today.
Is that better?

I would borrow
from tomorrow
if I thought today
would stay.
It can't,
I shan't.


Nice thoughts here.

Robert,
You could also say that
today is yesterdays tomorrow.
But you can't say it first! I just did. LOL
Kevin, it also looks like go forward to the past.
Denise, Thanks.
