If the World Should End on Tomorrow

If the world would end on tomorrow,

and our life's courses, all have been run.

I would say, if only to borrow, well done,

all good and faithful servants, well done.

Not to matter of what we all shall do,

or if most will prosper, or we all, to survive

As long as there is one human spirit, so left,

then this will be one, for us to revive.

We must live each day, as if our last,

and all in making the most, of every one,

Not any to worry about past deeds,

or the morrow, but to enjoy a warming sun.

The gift of a life and the love all have felt,

the human care and goodness, known,

Means more than all of the treasures of old,

in a special awareness, we are shown.

Take heed of the reality of God's own light, in this,

a world of his blues and of greens,

The true value given to all, a wonderful life,

and then, how great this all, so means.

We all have lived, and all have shared,

each on this earth, such marvelous things,

Wild creatures abound all over the land,

and in their beauty, a joy to us, it all brings.

Fond memories are many, as in our rest, to explore,

and in our minds, we then take refuge,

The friends we all have made, and more,

such good times were so many, in their deluge.

Take heart and hang on to these good times,

and no deed, or a thing, it will ever erase,

Our hope and faith, in this human kind,

God's great caring, He shows in His grace.

We must live each day, as if our last, and all in making the most, of every one,

This is so true. I think it is what we need to hang onto in these days of turmoil and oneupmanship.

I wrote this poem as a way to give respect to the coming years and as a means of showing the resilience of human kind.

I feel the need to read this over every so often. It helps me remember who I am, and that I have a long way to go before I sleep.
