This Moment

I may never see tomorrow, there's no written guarantee,and things that happened yesterday belong to history.I can not predict the Furture and I can not 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 past away,and be lost to me forever as apart of yesterday.I must exercise compassion, help the fallen to their feet.Be a friend unto the friendless make an empty life complete.I must make this moment precious for it will not come again,and I can never be content with the things that might have been.Kind words I fail to say on this day, may never be unsaid.For I know not how short may be the path that lies ahead.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 another chance on bended knees to pray, and Thank my God with humble heart for giving me this day.I may never see tomorrow, but this moment is my own.It's mine to use or cast aside the choice is mine alone.
I have just this precious moment in the sunlight of today,where the dawning of tomorrow meets the dusk of yesterday.
