POEMS: “Live each moment”


I may never see tomorrow,
there is 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 will soon 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 never more be won.

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

  1. You are probably the best poet that I have come across in present time. Such beautiful poems… oh!!


    1. Thank you so much! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed them, however, I cannot take the credit for this poem, the author is unknown. I like collecting poems and stories that I find inspirational and share them in my blog. At times I also write my own articles as well.
      You are very talented! I started to read your poems and they are beautiful! Congratulations!
