Today is precious.
Because she’s the first person I see in the morning.
Waiting so eagerly for my feet to hit the ground,
So I can rise to the occasion of her homecoming.
Today is ‘Here’.
Yes that’s her constant location on the maps.
Her middle name is Present,
And her last name is Now.
Forever at the center in the business of time.
And she’s such a good listener!
She lets me tell her all about
Yesterday and Tomorrow.
But I can tell that sometimes…
She would rather hear me speak about her instead.
And Today? Today is a teacher.
She doesn’t expect me to be perfect.
All she wants is to see me live and be alive
To learn as much as I can.
