Little thought do we give
To the promise within the days we live
For we go on living day by day
With no thought of the way
Time is spent.

Going about the routine of each day
Spent in the same old way
With hardly any variance coming into play
Of what we do or what we say.

The interaction of those we touch
Can mean so very much
If we only give some thought
To wonderful promise that can be brought.

Now is the time of promise 'tis true
We must utilize
Each moment that comes to me and you
So its promise to realize.

We long for the promise of love
To give a feeling that we belong
And a person whole and complete
When our soul mate we meet.

To know that we matter
Is a promise we make ourselves
Seeking to accomplish something of lasting value
Making a difference to the common good
Of all manhood.

May I be careful to give praise
To my God above
By living up to the promise He has for me
To be the best I can be
And giving Him all my love.
