Is there any chance we could just focus on today?
Instead of Halloween 
or back-to-school shopping 
or the weather forecast for tomorrow
or what Wall Street will look like on Monday
or how many pounds we want to lose in six weeks
or where we’re going for spring break
or who we’ll vote for 15 months from now
or what college will cost in 2020.
I know it’s a lot to ask,
but I thought I’d put in my request
while we still have some today left to treasure.
