This Moment

May 25, 2019

We are not promised tomorrow
Nor even the next hour

We have only this moment
For good or ill

To spend in kindness or anger
In calmness or spite

Of such moments
Our life is made

To move forward
Or stand still

To be remembered
In memory and blood

To be counted or discounted
When we pass on

Choose wisely
Make it count
