What Did I Do Yesterday?


Najma Saeed

I shall do so much in the years to come;
but what did I do yesterday?
I shall give my silver in a princely sum;
but what did I give yesterday?
I shall speak the words of love and cheer;
but what did I speak yesterday?
I shall bring each lonely life a smile;
but what did I bring yesterday?
I shall feed the hungering souls of Earth;
but whom did I feed yesterday?
I shall build my mansions in the sky;
but did I build yesterday?
I shall reap such joys in the by and by;
but what did I sow yesterday?
