I May Never See Tomorrow

Lionel Wayne's Banner Image

happened across this poem some time ago and it really spoke to me.

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 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 g-d with humble heart
For giving me this day!
