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 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 nevermore be won.

I may not have another chance
on bended knee to pray,
And thank God with humble heart
for giving me this day.
