Tomorrow's Child


Home » Blog » Tomorrow's Child

"Without a name, an unseen face, and knowing not your time or place,
Tomorrow's child, though yet unborn, I met you first last Tuesday morn.

A wise friend introduced us two. And through his sobering point of view
I saw a day that you would see, a day for you but not for me.

Knowing you has changed my thinking. For I never had an inkling
that perhaps the things I do might someday, somehow threaten you.

Tomorrow's child, my daughter, son,
I'm afraid I've just begun to think of you and of your good,
though always having known I should.

Begin, I will.
The way the cost of what I squander, what is lost,
if ever I forget that you will someday come and live here too."
