If Tomorrow Never Came


‘No regrets’ is a mantra of which to live by

Each date is a present in which we’re alive

Each moment Carpe Diem! No day is the same

Especially if…tomorrow never came

What would you say, what would you do

If today was the last day ever you knew?

I know not yours, but this I know mine

These words let me share thus held in my mind

You say that you love life but what does it mean?

On paper, in words, so frivolous can seem

No mistake are the words so carefully chose

Like the ones that are written to life in this prose

If you look, you will see the meaning in mind

If not, on the surface exactly you’ll find

What one says, what one means, no confusion there be

Depending on which you use sensory

Do you love only victory? Defeat you abhor?

Do you not see perfection in both to adore?

Do you think, “should be different, if this or if that”

While blind to the beauty of where you ‘be’ at?

Often, I laugh, of which no control

Of the paradox and joy in this life to behold

Could be good, could be bad; perception you choose

The beauty is this; “it’s all up to you!”

‘No regrets’ is a mantra I choose to live by

Smell the flowers today, not your grave should they lie

Risk nothing, gain nothing, to me; a life lame

Especially if…tomorrow never came

I’ll not have that sorrow, with life, as I’ve shared

On paper and actions, just how much I care

I know not tomorrow; not yours and not mine

It’s my prayer when you look; no regrets will you find

Believe…
