We should begin it today. Today is the only real day of life for us. Today is the tomb of yesterday, the cradle of tomorrow. All our past ends in today. All our future begins in today.
~ William Jordan

This Day

I may never see tomorrow;
there’s no written guarantee,
And things 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 then 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,
And friendships 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.
