Aside

Poem by unknown author (www.ellenbailey.com)

 

I may never see tomorrow,

There is 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 will soon pass away

And be lost to me 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 never more be won.
I may not have another chance

On bended knee to pray

And thank God with humble heart,

For giving me this day.
