Seize Today - A Poem

I will seize today
For it is shiny and new
Sparkling with promise
A gift wrapped
With moments for delight
To savor.

I will let go of yesterday's
Wrinkled regrets
Faded failures
Broken bows of disappointment
Moments to forget
And forgive.

I will not treasure tomorrow
For God has not promised
On earth
A gift out of reach
Withered moments to hug
And love.

Will you seize today?

"Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes." James 4:14
