Poem: No Promise of Tomorrow

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

No Promise of Tomorrow

Don't wait until tomorrow,
follow your dreams
without hesitation,
for there may not be another chance.

There is no promise for another day,
share quality time with those you love,
wake up with no regrets
for things left unsaid.

Don't let misunderstandings
take away precious moments,
for a person's life clock can expire,
leaving you with no time
for your lips to utter precious words.

"If Tomorrow Never Comes " by Ronan Keating
