Seize The Day

Seize The Day

written by: Jackie Harvey


So many words left unspoken
swirling around in your head.
You meant them but yet didn’t speak them,
you uttered some others instead.

You think that you have a lifetime
but a lifetime is what? Who can say?
For some it is years – sad and happy,
while for others it’s just one more day.

We all take so much for granted
oh, one more day, we can wait
but sometimes we just simply cannot
because one more day is too late.

We must cherish the moments we’re given
not allow them to wash down like rain.
We must treasure those moments we’re given,
we may not have the chance to again
