Today is a Gift

Today is a gift,
Yesterday is gone,
and tomorrow never
comes, so make today
the day…

You hug your children.
Express your love to
your spouse.
Call your sister and tell
her you are sorry.

Hold your mother in your arms
and tell her how much you love her.
Talk to your best friend and tell her
or him what they mean to you.

Today can not be exchanged,
or relived  for you see…
each day is a gift from God
and will never be granted again.

Jackie R. Kays
2004
