Pablo Loves Life

Not Like Tomorrow

This morning would not be like
tomorrow...
everything would be different

I would still wake alone
but, have no one to wake
no one to kiss goodbye
no reminder of an sport bag
or lunch forgotten

I will wake up
knowing they love and miss me
and my gentle voice
knowing that love protects me
of this sorrow

At that moment
tomorrow...
I would feel alone
but I know I belong
and that my love protects them

This morning may not feel the same
tomorrow...
without the kiss or goodbye

but that is only tomorrow...

    I must make this suggestion. It was my reaction. This is a beautiful poem and would be well read at a memorial of a loved one but the two lines (sport bag, lunch) could be altered to fit the one being remembered. Lovely, thank you, H
