This Day - Poem by ifedayo oshin

a day has just gone by
like a plane with speed of lightning
some made the best of it
many worst, still others, nought
whatever, forever, the day is far gone
not me, not you, could bring it back

but the day returns today
with basketful of missed opportunities
and blossom of fresh fruits
for the wise to pluck, fools to glare
another day looms like rainfull cloud
it'll be here but no sooner gone
not you not me could hold it back

a new day's here grab a minute, make it a millienium
say a kind a word, heal an aching heart
share your bread strengthen a wobbling feet
extend a hand uphold the downtrodden
for tommorrow is but unfound illusion
and yesterday exists only for the dead
for only you and me can make it a day
