What if tomorrow never comes? How will I live today? Words kept flowing through my mind as I walked the familiar path home from Church after my prayer yesterday….
I would wake up earlier than ever to catch the first ray of sunlight that brightens the day
I would look out for the morning sunbird that chirps happily as it feeds on the nectar from our yellow bell plants
I would watch as the wind blows the dried leaves rustling past me and try to catch the leaves as they fall
I would throw off my sandals, feel the soft grass under my feet and run freely on the fields
I would gaze into the sky, see the clouds roll by and be filled with awe by the One up there
I would listen and try to make sense of the multitude of noises that surround me
I would yearn to hear the Voice of the One who called me by name
I would whisper more ‘I love you’ as I gaze tenderly upon the faces of the ones I love
I would stretch out my hands to hold and hug those who have walked with me along the path of my life
Yes, when there is no tomorrow, i would have lived differently today.
