At Day’s End.
I would like to share this beautiful prose with you all.It is very touching.For at the end of the day , when we reflect back what we have done , we can feel satisfied with what we have done or that tomorrow we can be a better person .
At Day’s End.
Is anybody happier because you passed this way?
Does anyone rememberThat you spoke to them today?
Today is almost over,And it’s toiling time is through,
Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?
Can you say tonight in parting.
With the day that’s slipping fast…
That you helped a single person of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said?
Does the one whose hopes were fading
Now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day or us it?
Was it well or sorely spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness,or a scar of discontent?
As you close your eyes in slumber.
Do you think that God will say…”
You have earned one more tommorrow
By what you did today”.~~
And in reply another appropriate prose from an unknown writer. Credit and thanks to both of them.
I may never see tomorrow; there is no written guarantee,
And things that happened yesterday belong to history,
I cannot predict the future, I cannot change the past,
I have just the present moment, I must treat it as my last,
I must use this moment wisely for it soon will pass away,
and be lost to me forever as part of yesterday,
I must exercise compassion, help the fallen to their feet,
Be a friend unto the friendless, make an empty life complete,
The unkind things I do today may never be undone,
And friendships that I fail to win may nevermore be won,
I may not have another chance on bended knee to pray,
And thank God with humble heart for giving me this day.
