Today (a poem)

Briefly remembering a day that used to be…

Today was once a day
for celebration
when everything felt new
joy and anticipation

Now, I don’t want to do a post-mortem
I was there the first time
some thoughts do pop up at random
but there’s no reason to those rhymes

Today is now a day
for quiet contemplation
and living the day for what it is…
