At That Moment

Written by: Renae Reynolds

I may never see tomorrow 
There's no written guarantees 
And things that happened yesterday 
belong to history. 

I can not predict the future 
I can not 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 I pray
And thank "God" with humble heart
for giving me this day.
