    We could dream the dreams of tomorrow.
    Or we might bask in the memories of our yesterday.

    We could look at our past and chart a new direction.
    Or look at what is to come and make plans
    for happily ever after.

    I am sure that if we look back far enough
    we can find many reasons to cry.
    And looking ahead we could find a path to a bright sunshine.

    But since yesterday is gone tomorrow is not promised
    Think it’s possible that you just might simply,
    love me today?

    Love me now, right now in this moment.
    Just as I am with all of my shortcomings and flaws?

    With all of my idiosyncrasies that sometimes cause pain between you and me, could you love me?

    Just simply love me, right here, right now.

    And I will love you in return.

    Today is all we have to hold in our hands, and if we are lucky to be holding love, this is our BEST day. Very nice poem scribe.
