The Present Moment


The Present Moment

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 moments,
I must treat them as my last.

I must use this moment wisely
For it soon will pass away,
And 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 knee to pray,
And so I thank God with a humble heart
For giving me this day.
