I may never see tomorrow

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 forever

As a 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 thank God with a humble heart

For giving me this day.
