Another Sunrise

By Walt Perryman

This morning I witnessed another sunrise,
Today is a gift from God and is our prize.

However, all of today is not a for sure bet.
Some of us may not make it to this sunset.

Tomorrow we may have another sunrise,
But for today, letís enjoy our todayís prize.

If you can give someone a hand or even a smile,
Or spend some of your day with them for a while.

A little compliment can give someone a big lift,
A compliment will last longer than a bought gift.

We cannot buy time with silver or gold, this is true.
Today is your day and how you spend it is up to you.
