I may never
see tomorrow; there's no written guarantee,
that happened yesterday belong to history.
I cannot predict
the future. I cannot change the past.
I have just
the present moment. I must treat it as my last.
I must use this
moment wisely for it soon will pass away
and be lost
forever, as part of yesterday.
I must exercise
compassion, help the fallen to their feet,
be a friend
unto the friendless, make an empty life complete.
The unkind things
I do today may never be undone,
that I fail to win may nevermore 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.
