Today is the day

I am truly sorry to say 
Today... 
Today is the day 
Today is your last 
But be proud of your past
Be thankful for the time 
Be thankful for this life 
I know you are worried
You haven't lived right 
But don't be discouraged 

To some 
The things that you've done
They may have seemed wrong 
For others, they saw them as right 
But don't be discouraged
You can't please them all
We all 
Have our rises and falls 

Today...
Today is the day 
You will fall no longer 

Today is the day
You will no longer see hardship
You will no longer feel pain 
The world around you 
Will drift away 

Today is the day
You meet your demise
But please realize 
Today
Could have come sooner 
Instead,
It's today
Today is just another day.
Like all those before it 
Like those that may have come after
Nothing different 
Nothing changed
But today 

Today is the day 
Life flashing before your eyes 
Vivid visions
Marbled memories
And colorful recollections
Fading to gray

What lies ahead for you 
I cannot say

But maybe this life...

In its entirety...
 
Is just another day 

Falling asleep

Drifting in darkness 

Until we awake 

                                                                                                                       


In Memory of Eugene F.

Seems Poetic, I enjoyed reading Today. Very profound, peaceful but questioning the universe. I loved your final lines, "Drifting in darkness until we awake". As always you rock !
Thanks for sharing and God Bless
