At last, the sun returns to warm this day
The gloom that filled this room is dead and gone
And like a child, I find myself at play
Now prompted by an urging to move on
For what is done, is done. The past has passed.
What purpose would be served to linger there?
The precious moments passed us by too fast
Consumed by unknown futures we’ve prepared
I know this day could be the last I see
If all the days I forfeit lead to this
My future is the present found in thee
This very moment spent in sunlit bliss
So just in case said future slips away
I’m cashing in my yesterdays each day.
