4.Today And Tomorrow
Don’t Tell me of tomorrow
Give me the man who’ll say
That , when a good deed today
‘Let’s do the deed today.’
We may all command the present ,
If we act and never wait,
But repentance is the phantom
Of a past that comes too late!
Don’t tell me of tomorrow
There is much to do to-day
That can never be accomplished,
If we throw the hours away .
Every moment has its duty,
Who the future can foretell ?
Then whu put off till tomorrow
What today can do as well?
