I but have today to know I exist

Because I do not know of my tomorrow 
Yesterday is gone I've forgotten it 
I but have today to know I exist
I resist letting my today be wasted on drama
I am out sipping on sunshine 
Gliding on life
Dancing in the rain while drinking rain drops
Have my fill on ice cream till I'm well content 
Smile because I just love life 
Love every unloved one
Give and share 
because it makes me feel absolutely wonderful 

And when night comes I'm up eating chocolates
while writing poems of my life's adventure 

     
    Smile

Do you have any idea how quickly this advice would put all therapists out of business? I am a lpc, so believe me, I know what I'm talking about. Follow this advice people, it's FREE and it could save you hundreds of hours, hundreds of dollars, and it could free your soul and help you find the real you.

If we all could put drama in perspective , judged against our blessings in life we'd be so much better off. You have crafted an uplifting and very beautiful poem my friend.. Easily a fav for me and a welcomed rare gem.

Hello Kina this is such a lovely poem. So very well written and beautifully expressed with emphasis on the simple things in life. Like sipping sunshine drinking raindrops eating ice cream and chocolate and the most important thing of all loving others as you love yourself. Great words to live by Kina straight to my faves it goes have a wonderful blessed day :) :)
