I’m Not Going to Cry Tomorrow

I’m not going to cry tomorrow.
I am going to watch the sunrise
and rejoice in the day.
I’m not going to think about
all the joy you brought
and all the smiles you put on my face.
Tomorrow I’m going to find a new road
that I’ve never walked down before.
I’m going to come up with the plan
to move from here to there
and maybe even figure out
where “there” is.
Not one time will I think of your touch
nor wallow in your memory.
Somehow I’m not going to think
of getting lost in your eyes.
I’m not going to cry tomorrow,
but tonight. . .
