I致e come to realize I must seize the day
so that I may cherish my night;
put all of my plans to work, make them pay
then in the dusking, take you in my sight.

Seize the day, take a stand,
in the gloaming, you値l take my hand;
I値l go forth in the sunshine, go one step more
so in the twilight, you値l come toward my door.

I値l work not feverishly, but with strength and fortitude
so during later hours, there痴 a change of attitude.
But in the dawning and nooning thus
I値l put myself forth without a fuss.

Knowing that I have you to cherish with me the night
you値l take me in whole, you値l wrap me up tight.
In your arms I値l know such furious delight
Thank God I seized the day to get to tonight!

Wow, inspiring. I guess since it's night it's time to cherish, but then what am I doing here? I know there's more captivating cherishing I could be doing.

The title says it all...this could have been a one-line poem!
