Poems are harder when you're not in a poetic mood! I started one poem but couldn't make sense of the words that rhymed. (moon, loon, boon, coon, spoon, etc.) (night, light, fight, plight, delight, etc.) So, I started over again. Here's what I came up with: TODAY Yesterday has slipped away. Tomorrow ...

You have some loving friends here, to help with that "climbing out."
