Beginning today

Out of darkness comes the light,
Showing us the right way.
The sun rises after the long night,
Marking the beginning of a new day.


Each day is a gift brand new,
It is here today, gone tomorrow.
The value of it if you only knew,
You’d seize the day instead of taking it slow.


Yesterday is all gone,
There is no point to have a regret.
Concentrate on what can be done,
The past you just have to forget.


Opportunity knocks at your door each morning,
You’ve got to open the door and let it in.
Don’t say it came without a warning,
You can’t slack if you want to win.


You can do something new today,
A new habit is never too late to start.
The sun is shining bright, make hay,
Don’t just do it, but put in your heart.


The best time to begin is now,
Start now while you may!
Time will pass and you won’t know how,
So what are you doing beginning today?
