A Daydreamer's hope

Why would a person linger past the news at ten o'clock,
daydreaming of the days yet to be blessed?
savoring the day just spent, while the tick-tock
says, "Tomorrow will go better with some rest."

And, knowing that today's the best there is;
if not enjoyed, the future's rendered empty too.
And, so, step by step, let each mr. or ms.
live now, plan with allowance for the new.

Pick up a fact and learn and ponder,
and see how it may serve to build design,
that brings joy today, fulfillment yonder,
The mentioned rest right now would do just fine.
