Today wasn't the best of days
I've sure heard that one before
Just another day
Oh how I'd hoped to accomplish more
After a day like today
I often wonder
What if today was my last?
If after today I'd be going under?
Oh the things that I would change
The people I'd hold closer
The words i would take back
Its too bad the day is over
Where's my guarantee that I'll still be here tomorrow?
I have none
A bad day is just unacceptable
As it may have been my last one
Why didn't I try harder
to make today amazing
What's my excuse for being lazy
For not jumping, singing, dancing?
I should have rejoiced with the rising sun
Not cowered at the first signs of dawn
I should have lived every moment to its fullest
Because you never know a good thing 'till its gone
So I'm reviewing my day
My entire life, actually
all those wasted moments
I just threw them away for free
Who am I to deem one moment
more pertinent than the next
Every minute is preciously endowed to me
I have to make each one my best
So I ask Hashem before i lay to sleep
Please let me be wrong
Let me have another day
And this thought makes me strong
Tomorrow I'll make it up to myself
taking baby steps no less
I'll hold closely onto every moment
And thank Hashem I am so blessed
What If Today Was Your Last? It Kind Of Is...

I ABSOLUTELY THIS THIS PIECE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much for posting! I think about this quite often, yet it's actually a quite scary thought to be thinking. Do you agree? We never know what tomorrow will bring, but we do know that we B'H will have a today. Thanks again!
