Live for today

Life is precious; grasp it with both hands,
Fill it with happiness and simple plans,
What happened yesterday, has now gone,
Don’t worry for tomorrow, it may never come along.

Create your own miracles by being kind,
These acts of caring will bring peace of mind,
Surprise someone by going the extra mile,
The smile on their face makes it all worthwhile.

Take a chance, small it may be,
Move forward, the change may set you free,
Bond with the earth; plant a tree or two,
Let the wind blow as it caresses you.

May it flow gently into your heart,
Allow nature to do its part,
While quietly meditating this day,
Healing may come in a special way.
