NO REGRETS

Each day begins anew
And I receive a measure
Of breath to share a moment
That could someday be a treasure.


Shall I but take for granted
My years upon this earth
Not listening to the rhythm
Of my breathing set at birth?


Breath spent cannot return
No matter how I pray
That I can have another chance
To relive a wasted day.


Shall I run breathless through my maze
Letting time pass quickly by
Or choose to direct my path
And catch the memories before they fly?


Each time I breathe a prayer
For His hand to lead me on
I must listen and obey
Before a chance to serve is gone.


The gifts He breathed in me
To be used to glorify
Will wither and fade away
Unless I lift His banner high.


Every breath I have is numbered
And I cannot know when
My voice will become silent
And my life will see its end.


His Spirit gives my soul
The breath to sing and dance
Let not my last words be,
“Please give me one more chance.”


Let me work through each new day
To see each battle won
May the Spirit breathe the words
That say, “My child, a job well done.”

You did an excellent job with your story. I enjoyed this so much. Thank you for sharing.

Oh I could so empathize with the MC on this one. There have been many days when I prayed for a do-over. Although God does give us a second chance, we never have the same day to "do-over."

I really enjoyed this poem. It rings true in so many ways. Take advantage of each breath. Marvelous!

This poem is A+ in rhyme and meter and the message is one we all should heed. Great job.
