Tomorrow // Positively Speaking // Mark Wilson

My father was a preacher, and many times during the course of my childhood, I recall him quoting this powerful little poem by Edgar A. Guest.

Though penned a hundred years ago, the message rings true today.


He was going to be all that a mortal should be To-morrow.
No one should be kinder or braver than he To-morrow.
A friend who was troubled and weary he knew,
Who’d be glad of a lift and who needed it, too;
On him he would call and see what he could do –To-morrow.

Each morning he stacked up the letters he’d write To-morrow.
And thought of the folks he would fill with delight To-morrow.
It was too bad, indeed, he was busy to-day,
And hadn’t a minute to stop on his way;
More time he would have to give others, he’d say, To-morrow.

The greatest of workers this man would have been To-morrow.
The world would have known him, had he ever seen To-morrow.

But the fact is, he died and he faded from view
And all that he left here when living was through
Was a mountain of things he intended to do Tomorrow.
