"After all, tomorrow is another day."

A writing prompt from Carry on Tuesday - a line from 'Gone with the Wind' by Margaret Mitchell:

"After all, tomorrow is another day."

“As of tomorrow I will start anew,
I will not waste again another day,
We’re parting ways, adieu, my love, adieu,
Pardon my French,” to my old self I say.

“But, darling, wait,” my old self chimes in,
“Have you forgotten something?  After all,
There is a rule for those who begin
A brand new life, oh don’t you recall?”

“I think I know what you mean, cherie:
I have to wait until a certain day…
I’ll wait till Monday then, thanks, mon amie!
Au revoir, I’ll see you soon!” I say.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
