What if today was the day
The day that defined your life
Your life and all that you have done
Have done along the way?
What if the moment was now
Was now, and you didn’t know
Didn’t know or even have a clue
A clue or a hint as to how?
Does the thought of that draw a smile
A smile or a gasp or a frown
A frown of regret or even a tear
A tear, wishing you had awhile?
Would you long for another day
Another day to prove yourself
Prove yourself and what you would do
Would do, or maybe say?
I will not waste this day
This day right here, right now
Right now, though I might want to sit
Today might be the day.
