Have you ever wished, when a day went wrong
a wish that's quite in vain
that it were only possible
to live that day again

 

You'd start out in the morning
with the prayers you should have said
and through the days your actions
with tolerance be led

 

The many little instances
that tried your patience, true
if only you could start again
you'd know now what to do

 

You'd kneel and say your evening prayers
and thank the lord above
for all the pleasant hours past
your heart at peace with love

 

But since this is a wish in vain
and never can be true
there's only one alternative
just one thing you can do

 

To live today in such a way
that when tomorrow comes
the memories of yesterday
will all be cherished ones.

in words we can find peace contentment or just strength

Live for today
