Carpe Diem

This day is young where we embrace
God's grace soft-flung to time and space
And what we do with it will be
Forever part of history

This day is new to you and I
In spite of other days gone by
None ever held this day before
Its lilt soon spilt and sealed to yore

This day is chief, its little reign
Will, leaf by leaf unveil joy, pain,
Grief, laughter, like a flower tree
That blooms then fades on twilight’s lea

This day is It; our best intent
Was meant for This ere it is spent
Thus it behooves each one to pray
To seek God’s hand then seize this day

© Janet Martin

This is the day the Lord has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

(a verse that reminds us,
no matter how often we hear it,
from Who and Why, this day)
