Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow – Khalil Gibran

I said to my friend:

“See her leaning over his arm?

Yesterday she leaned over my arm.”

And he said:

“Tomorrow she will lean over mine.”

And I said:

“See her sitting at his side;

And yesterday she sat at my side.”

And he said:

“Tomorrow she will sit at mine.”

And I said:

“Don’t you see her drinking from his cup?

And yesterday she sipped from mine.”

And he said:

“Tomorrow she will drink from mine.”

And I said:

“Look how she glances at him with eyes full of Love!

and with just such love, yesterday she glanced at me.”

And he said:

“Tomorrow she will glance at me, likewise.”

And I said:

“Listen to her whispering songs of love in his ears;

And yesterday she whispered the same songs in mine.”

And he said:

“Tomorrow she will whisper them in mine.”

And I said:

“Look at her embracing him; and yesterday she embraced me.”

And he said:

“Tomorrow she will lie in my arms.”

And I said:

“What a strange woman she is!!”

And he said:

“She is life!”
