Living for today
THE past is gone. it can no more return.
We should remember this. Let hearts not burn.
In grief, regrets, to long and sigh for the past.
For loved ones lost, remember not aghast,
The time of death, the grief, the loss ahead,
Just think of happy memories instead
And they will live forever in your heart.
Do not regret for misdeeds past but start
Again and vow these wrongs to not repeat.
At times we falter, at times we’re pushed but beat
With God’s assistance, love, our baser selves.
(He knows that sometimes we’re just naughty elves.)
Tomorrow may not come. Don’t sit and dream
Forever in the future plan and scheme –
Forget along the way that Life’s today!
“To win a million, buy a yacht,” they say,
“To own a multi-million firm always.”
So, would that bring contentment, happy days?
Oh, no. Contentment dwells within the heart
For riches, wealth, prestige are things apart.
They bring not happiness to restless man
But constant dreams of wealth, content can ban.
So dream ahead of homes within our means
And other realistic, fulfilling dreams.
Let’s live our lives for today. Today we’re here
So let’s not brood on past, or future fear,
But live this life as though this day’s our last
And love our loved ones. dwell not on the past.
To brood on kicks from the past can wreck your life
I know, and bring your loved ones care and strife.
However, should you wish to right a wrong
You’ve done, don’t wait. Please do it now, be strong.
Enjoy the lives we live and be content
And live in love and peace with no dissent.
Let’s thank our God for roof that’s overhead,
And for our lives, our world, our food, our bed.
