Today - Poem by Daniel Trevelyn Joseph

She said, “I don’t care about what others think.”
I recalled how as newly married,
She would not hold hands in public with me,
And she replied, “That was then; today,
I don’t mind holding anybody’s hands! ”
I did not continue, but moved out,
Knowing it will sink in, but in due course.
Just now, she has to have her say in full.

Reality has no provision to rub out
What we felt on any one of the yesterdays:
We can do it differently today, thank God!
Sometimes Life holds you
To the consequences of what you sow.
I admit now my reference to past was bad.
That it was different in the past cannot be held
To detract from the truth of the present moment.
