A LETTER MAILED TO YESTERDAY
Live For Today
If I wrote myself a letter today,
I’m not even certain of what I would say.
I’d surely remind myself of all the things I missed.
And being true to me would surely top my list.
I’m done with tears that took away many years of joy,
I’ve wrote the hurts all down and know what I should avoid,
I wish I could mail the hurts to me way back then.
Maybe I could stop them before they all begin.
I’d tell myself to concentrate on living happily,
Discard the negative things that make me feel badly.
I’ll write down notes so I can set them straight.
I’ll tell myself be patient you only have to wait.
God never built a mountain that’s too high to reach.
I know this is true, but it’s a tough act to teach.
In my letter I will tell myself that God has plans for me,
If I only pay attention I will never want or need.
For the only thing that matters is who I am today;
Forget those mistakes that were made yesterday.
