Do today what you will wish you had done

Don’t take things for granted
Don’t procrastinate
Time is not on anyone’s side
You have the pen now to write your history
Do today what you will wish you had done

Before the days become years past
Before the present becomes history
So you won’t look back and wish you had
And begin to wonder where the years went
Do today what you will wish you had done

One day you’ll wake up and it would look like a dream
The stories of the years gone will flow more
You will realize your generation has passed
Another generation has come that knows you not
Do today what you will wish you had done

There is time for everything under heaven
Life is in stages and men are in sizes
Enjoy today and every stage of your life
Don’t be too future conscious and neglect the present
Do today what you will wish you had done

Say the ‘I love you’ before you wish you had
Hug the huggable now that you can
‘I’m sorry’ should not be difficult to say now
Give all you can while you still can
Do today what you will wish you had done

Take care of your parents while you have them
Love your neighbors while you still can
Pray for others while there is still hope
Remember your creator in the days of your youth
Do today what you will wish you had done

Pray more, love more, give more and be thankful
Just get up and do it now, don’t push it to tomorrow
Tomorrow is a mirage that never really comes
There are opportunity and time only for today
Do today what you will wish you had done

When you look in retrospect into the years gone by
And reminiscence about your achievements
Let that smile come to brighten your face
That you did then what you wish you had done
So start doing today what you will wish you had done
