Today is chosen by some as Still Need To Do Day. There is a lot that I still need to do. How about you readers on here? Still have things to do? On the page speaking about this day, I found some advice. Are there things you’ve yet to do? Do you keep putting these off being these pleasant or unpleasant? No. I’m not riding you about it. Me too! The advice? Just Do It!
Someone once told me that I am too free with my compliments, trust, respect and care. I still cannot get that person to understand that when you are handed a prognosis that you may only have today and no tomorrow, it has inclined at least me to try to keep to saying the good things about all and keep living each moment with all I have. There may not be a tomorrow so why not live each day not fearing that but trying to put your best you forward. With such risks come some losses. Trust me, I’ve lived those as well. But, is it ever really a loss if you know you’ve done your utmost to bring goodness and love into the world? I think not. Let’s give it all we got!
While Yet I Live by Michael Romani The new year approaches short and steady Too many of us find that we're not ready Yet, Janus, the two faced god, says it is so And so we approach as best that we know I pray to God for the strength to look backward While keeping my eyes on life moving forward Seeking the truth of abundance in the plentiful Living each moment in its magic so beautiful At this moment, absolutely sacred and profane I look upward into Heavens to release the rain Of knowing that while yet I still live There is more of me required and that I must give All those many things that I would have wanted Too many things missed that remain a bit haunted Like living a lifetime fighting for peace And learning that the best chance is to release The thought that I might impact this one too deep Beyond finding my own way to inner peace to keep Letting go to let God there somewhere in the God flow Where a trust in the mutuality of all is all I know So like the song says, let this peace on earth begin With me and let its light maybe spread that is when We might have our best chance on that bit of to do list Hiding shrouded right there in the openness of things I've missed The next of things left on my life's perhaps last to do list Is a thought that I am sure is blessed perhaps even God kissed That I might give belief in God and what is right in legacy In the example I live and write on and sing about to my family If I can only let my angels know somehow that I have done my best And that I am sorry that perhaps I did not pass this test And let them see and know and feel that I wish them all my love And that they might set their eyes and hearts on what's above Then I will have served them well as their father in my duty Filling their hearts with love, joy, peace and all the beauty That is around them, beams through them and is indeed them Then maybe that might be a greater treasure than the rarest gem If I might serve to leave it written to read that they might know The history of our nation's principles worth keeping from long ago Then perhaps I might teach them, and reach them in their hearts And that I think and dream and hope is just maybe a good start Of my still need to do list So many things I'm certain that I've missed Hopefully there will be time enough to tell All that's left and leave this as my last and living will (c) December 29, 2019 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
