Today Is All You Have


The inky black
of the sky
is flecked with gold
by the shimmering rays
of the rising sun
that heralds a new dawn
Wiped clean of
yesterday’s blemishes
by the moon’s
soothing light
the day is a blank slate
waiting to be filled
a second chance
to get it right
Paint it lovingly
in bright colours of hope
Coat it
with the warmth of love
Give it
the burnished glow
of friendship
and seal it with kindness
before time runs out
on today
and it slips
through your fingers
