Always Count That Day
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2012
As we age we realize that,
Our days on earth are few.
And with that thought we start to think,
There were days we just ran through.
These were usually days gone fast,
Because they weren't much fun.
And when we look back in our thoughts,
These days are often gone.
Wasted days are not so good,
Especially when we have so few.
Even days that aren't so good,
Are days I have with you.
So from now on my attitude will change,
And I will count that day.
The days of good, the days of bad,
Will all be my days array.
I will count that day no matter what,
And I will always remember it.
Life is too short as it is,
And this I will admit.
No more will I skip a day,
Or erase it from my mind.
I'll take each moment of each day,
And be thankful and kind.
