Someday does not arrive with fanfare.
It does not arrive with trumpets,
with high-stepping horses
and ticker tape raining down.
Someday does not announce itself
on the nightly news.
Someday does not mark itself
with a large red X on your calendar.
It does not ask if you can fit it in
between Hair Appointment, 10:30 a.m.,
and Job Interview DON’T BE LATE,
it does not care
if this is a busy week
and you really just don’t have the time.
Someday knocks on your door
out of the blue on a Sunday morning,
when the house is a mess
and you are hungover
and the cat has just coughed up a hairball
in the middle of the floor.
When it does,
you must stop what you are doing.
You must take a deep breath,
sit down and give Someday
your full attention.
It might only come once.
