INSPIRATIONAL POEMS: “Today”

“Today”

 

We shall do much in the years to come,
but what have we done today?
We shall give our gold in a princely sum,
but what did we give today?
We shall lift the heart and dry the tear,
We shall plant a hope in the place of fear,
We shall speak the words of love and cheer
but what did we speak today?

We shall be so kind in the after-while,
but what have we been today?
We shall bring each lonely life a smile,
but what have we brought today?
We shall give to truth a grander birth,
And to steadfast faith a deeper worth,
We shall feed the hungering souls of earth,
but whom have we fed today?

We shall reap such joys in the by and by,
but what have we sown today?
We shall build us mansions in the sky,
but what have we built today?
‘Tis sweet in idle dreams to bask,
but here and now do we do our task?
Yes, this is the thing our souls must ask,
“What have we done today?”

    Exactly! I love this poem and it’s message of the importance of being present to today. So true. Just as an example, if we aren’t kind in this moment, today, then what makes us think that we’ll be kind under different or easier circumstances tomorrow?
    I also love all the photos and quotes you included in this post.
    Hugs to you dear Amira.

    1. I agree dear Michèle! Sometimes we think we are going to be around forever, and leave things for another day, or hope to do things in the future, rather than trying each day to be kinder, more loving and compassionate, and we miss the opportunities, and the moments pass…We need to be aware of each moment as a precious gift.
      Always so lovely to hear from you dear friend! Thank you for visiting and sharing your beautiful light ❤ ❤ ❤
