The Day That Got Away (Last Day of National Poetry Month)

The Day That Got Away

There it was,
there it went.
Where has it gone?
I wish I knew
 but I suspect,
as I stifle back my yawn-
it slipped away, 
my today
never to return
 History,
a mystery 
for which 
now I yearn.
Too late, too short, 
without further adieu,
I bid you sweet farewell
Be gone now, finished,
shoo!
Procrastinated plans,
interruptions in my day,
set me on a treadmill
of multiple delays.
So now I see the clock has ticked it’s final tock,
I will hope my tomorrow
wears a more productive frock.
For now I say, Ta-Ta
and I wave my hand goodbye
sweet dreams today,
Tomorrow’s my ally.

    smiles…our days disappear if we are not intentional about what we do with them…and procrastination will def catch up with you…

    I agree about it leaving a smile! We wrote on similar theme with far different approaches.

    I have days just like that. I have to do better at managing my time. Today was a fairly good day for me. Even with having a doctor's appointment.
