If Just For Today

If just for today ,could you take someones hand,
Look into their eyes and say, " I understand".

If just for today, could you not judge someone so fast.
Think about tomorrow and forget about the past.

If just for today, could you try to do your part,
forget about everything else, and give from the heart.

If just for today, could you open your arms wide.
Isn't it about time that you threw away, that pride.

If just for today, could you take a look around.
Bask in the simplicity, of every little sound.

If just for today, be aware of the words you say.
Thank God for his mercy and take time to pray.

If just for today, put the little things behind,
you'll be surprised at what you may find.

If just for today why don't you put an end,
to that silly argument that you had with a friend.

If just for today remember out Lord above,
fill your day with laughter and people you love.

One day is a moment, but it can become two.
you would be amazed at all the "ifs" you can do.
