He Promised He'D Return Tomorrow - Poem by Vidyapati Thakur

He promised he'd return tomorrow.
And I wrote everywhere on my floor:
'Tomorrow.'

The morning broke, when they all asked:
Now tell us, when will your 'Tomorrow' come?
Tomorrow, Tomorrow, where are you?
I cried and cried, but my Tomorrow never returned!

Vidyapati says: O listen, dear!
Your Tomorrow became a today
with other women.
