today is a gift from God

i see how fast it goes
the end, well no-one knows
it's time to stop
and smell the roses
to give a smile and greet,
and great today.
don't close my eyes,
and wish it all away
like rain come back
another day.
No, but close your eyes
and pray for the hard things,
seek Him cuz your lost
we don't live by the date
we live by faith
i know that things
are about to change
and by standing firm,
i will gain life.

I'm not a poet, obviously. I prefer to think of these words as incomplete lyrics.

But it's true, you know. I'll be back in 11 days. Things are going to change -- and I know one things for sure. I'm going to be trusting God like I never have before.
