Don’t Cry for Tomorrow

Don’t cry for tomorrow
you made it to today

here as the minutes advance
taste them as the chef serves them
don’t compare right now to anything

don’t let your pattern-seeking brain
lead you down a road that isn’t there yet

yesterday was a mentor, a coach
but not one you want to lead you

as you digest the new seconds
put them in your box of recipes

remember you may never make those meals again
remember your greatest times were surprises
remember how you invented all those laughs
hold on to the menus of love and happiness
they will serve you as you serve them
