Today Matters

the way you live your life 
is a gift to those 
who come after 
make it a fantastic one 
moments you empower 
energy you send 
to those you love 
the scene unfolding 
right outside your window 
is worth more than any 
beautiful picture 
the humble sandwich 
you are having for lunch 
is as profound as dining 
in the fanciest restaurant 
today is your time 
yesterday is a memory 
tomorrow only a fantasy 
today is happening 
today matters 
waste not a precious moment
