At the End of the Day
This poem is a tribute to my late grandmother, who believed living life to the fullest, treating others with kindness and looking for the good in both situations and people. Since this is the season of both Easter and Passover, I thought I'd share it. Happy Holidays to Everyone!
If I have let this day pass by
and can't remember something good about it,
then I have been ungrateful
and I beg forgiveness.
If I have been involved too much with me...
my wants and woes, to see the beauty that surrounds me,
then I have played the fool and I am sorry.
If I have not stretched out my hands
to loved ones to show them that I care,
then I have been unfeeling and I am ashamed.
If I have failed to help when it was needed,
yet asked others to help me
then I have been selfish and I apologize.
If I have not seen the face of God
reflected in a million ways and places,
then I have been blind and I ask for another chance
to try again tomorrow.
