All the tomorrows--like bouquets of roses,
But gentle the holiday for thorns hide away.
As you find the fragrance in this bright arrangement,
Just keep the reminder: Soon they are today.
Water them lovingly; set them in sunshine.
In this day and hour, they will keep their bright bloom.
The scent of their promise, and all it is holding,
Will circle like diamonds in your private room.
Share them with someone. Whoever is needing.
Especially if this is a person you love.
Then find their contentment. It outshines the shadows
With hope of a heaven and peace of a dove.
