A Day of Sharing

I happened upon this thru Catherine Witherells Blog and I thought I would join in to. LK Ludwig is the one hosting this event called A Day of Sharing. Mine isn't so much a poem but a song that I have been playing over an over...here it is...

If Today Was Your Last Day

My best friend gave me the best advice.
He said each day's a gift and not a given right.
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind,
and try to take the path less traveled by.
That first step you take is the longest stride.

If today was your last day,
and tomorrow was too late,
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
would you, would you?
Would you live each moment like your last?
and leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you have?
would you, would you?
If today was your last day?

Against the grain should be a way of life.
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight.
Every second counts, cuz there's no second try.
So live it like you'll never live it twice.
Don't take the free ride in your own life.

If today was your last day, and tomorrow was too late,
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
would you, would you?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you have?
would you, would you?

Would you call those friends you never see?
Reminisce on memories?
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreaming of?
Swear up and down to God above, that you'd finally fall in love?
would you, would you?
If today was your last day?


If today was your last day,
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know, it's never too late to shoot for the stars,
regardless of who you are?
So do whatever it takes,
Cuz you can't rewind a moment in this life.
Let nothing stand in your way,
cuz the hands of time are never on your side.
If today was your last day?
