I Have Only Today

By Jenny Leigh Hodgins 2008

I have only today

To breathe fresh air

And feel the joy there

I have only today

To relish beautiful colors

Of sky or fields of flowers

I have only today

To treasure what we have

Together, on this path

I have only today

To savor precious time

And everything of mine

Life is in this moment

Love pours out from here

Even when it’s over

Nothing’s far, it’s near

Life is in this moment

Love grows year to year

Even separation

Can’t make that disappear

But I have only today

To realize this truth

And share it well with you

I have only today

To stand up strong and brave

To act upon my stage

I have only today

To discard my lesser self

And seize my inner wealth

I have only today

To find my joy within

And from this point begin

Life is in this moment

Love pours out from here

Even when it’s over

Nothing’s far, it’s near

Life is in this moment

Love grows year to year

It’s a declaration

Stated to be clear

Life is in this moment

Love pours out from here

Seize this with all your might

And overcome all fear.

Life is in this moment

Your strength and hope is here;

The depths of your existence

‘Your priceless souvenir.
