Tomorrow May Never Come

Some days will come by
and I’ll act like
it was mine to have all along.
I’ll get so busy and caught up
with everything else
that I forget to say “thank you”.

And then some days will come along
and I’ll remember without a doubt
tomorrow may never come
whether or not I appreciate it.

I’ve learned to wake up
with a grateful heart each day.
To smell the flowers
while they are still fresh.
Though I’ll still forget they are there.
