This Moment
Posted On: 2021-02-12

 

I may never see tomorrow; there's no written guarantee,
And things that happened yesterday belong to history.

I cannot predict the future, and 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 to me forever as a part of yesterday.

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

I must make this moment precious for it will not come again, 
And I can never be content with things that might have been. 

A kind word I fail to say this day may never be unsaid,
For I know not how short may be the path that lies ahead.

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

I may not have another chance on bended knee to pray,
And thank my 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 meets the dusk of yesterday.
