Do not cry over the past, it has gone;
Forge ahead, the deed has been done.
Worry not over the future, God holds it;
let not present pains make you quit.
Today’s skies are bright and beautiful,
maximise it to make your world wonderful.
Worthless is the rainfall of yesterdays,
you cannot use its sunshine to make hays.
The future is but a mansion of mysteries,
worth the wishes but not your worries.
Yesterday is a hall of hopes and history,
it is gone, only to be told as a story.
All you have is this moment, be happy,
smile away your sorrows, make it snappy!
Today will never come again my dear,
fill your heart with faith, shun fear.
Each moment in life turns to memories,
use this moment to leave great legacies.
