I May Never See Tomorrow

Filed under: Life And People |

I may never see tomorrow,
there’s no guarantee,
and things that happened yesterday
belong to history.
I can’t predict the future,
I can’t change the past,
I have just the present memories
to treat as my last.

I must use this moment wisely,
for soon it will pass away. And be lost for
forever as a part of yesterday.

I must exercise compassion,
help the fallen to their feet,
Be a friend unto the friendless,
make their life complete.

The unkind things I do today,
may never be undone,
And friendships I fail to win
may never more be won.

I may not have another chance,
on bended knees to pray,
And I thank God with a humble heart
for giving me this day!
I may never see tomorrow,
but this moment is my own.

It’s mine to use or cast aside;
the choice is mine, alone.
I have just this precious moment
in the sunlight of today.

Where the dawning of tomorrow
meet the dusk of yesterday.
