Live each day as though it were your first

Before i knew of anything, i knew of love.
Love was already there.
In everything my eyes fell upon,
In every breath of air.
i can't recall what came next,
Was it hope or was it fear?
If only i could remember,
Life would be more clear.
'Live each day is it were your last',
Does not a Heaven build.
It makes of life an empty cup,
Waiting to be filled.
To walk as one enlightened,
And really quench your thirst.
Awaken each and every day,
And live it as your first.


  1. I really, really like this! I will think of it the rest of today and tomorrow-living the day as my first.

  2. Beautiful. Have you set it to music? Reading it aloud, it sounds like it should be sung.

  3. Cheers, Steve! And thanks for dropping by my site, too. Great photos you have here.

  4. This should definitely be set to music. Odd how your post blends in so well with mine of today.

    Life is so fleeting. This moment is all we truly have. And it flashes by so fast we cannot grasp all that it contains.

  5. Extremely inspiring and wonderfully written!
