That old saying, "Don't put off today what you could do tomorrow", is with me always.


It Could Be the Last Time!
One thing I’ve learned and I learned this lesson well.
I never put off today, something I should do, try or tell.
Not telling someone you loved them, may not seem dire to you.
But what if they were gone tomorrow and didn’t have a clue.
I found that if a thought pops up, I must act on it right away.
If I don’t, it may ruin my tomorrow and many other days.
I let my friends and family know, how much they mean to me.
And if I die tomorrow, contented they will be.
So don’t put off another day of telling someone you care.
For it may be the last time, you will see them standing there.
Written by,
Bonnie May
