I may never…



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 the moment wisely

For it soon will pass away

And be lost to me forever

And be part of yesterday


I must exercise compassion

Help the fallen to their feet

Be a friend to 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 never be won


I may not have another chance

On bended knee to pray,

And I thank God with humble heart

For giving me the day.
