STRANGE THOUGHT

Why do we say see you tomorrow,

 

When tomorrow becomes today.

 

We know come what may,

 

There's no tomorrow,

 

So shouldn't we say see you today?

Ha! I have a plaque in my house. It is the script that goes like this:

Do not ruin today
with tomorrow's worries
or yesterday's woes.
Remember, today is the tomorrow
you worried about yesterday.
The only true reality
is now.

Your poem reflects that in my mind.

Thought about that often enough. It may indicate that we have a continuing desire to see them even if 'tomorrow' never comes.' Or something like that; it's still an incompleted thought. See you today, feels like we will never be parted. Thanks for sharing. /Rik.
