This Day

This Day


I may never see tomorrow,


there's no guarantee,


And things that happened yesterday


belong to history.



I can't predict the future,


I cannot change the past,


I have just the present memories


to cherish as my last.



I must use this moment wisely,


for it will pass away,


and then be lost forever


as a part of yesterday.



I must exercise compassion;


help the fallen to their feet,


be a friend unto the friendless,


help to make their life complete.



The unkind things I do today,


may never be undone,


and friendships that I fail to win,


may never more be won.



I may not have another chance


on bended knees to pray,


I thank God with a humble heart


for giving me this day!
