Celebrate Each Day



Ignore the calendar. Prospects put away.
Tomorrow is elusive.
Celebrate this day.

Ignore the calendar. Venerate your worth.
Tomorrow is elusive.
Celebrate your birth.

Ignore the calendar. Call liberty forth.
Tomorrow is elusive.
Celebrate the Fourth.

Ignore the calendar. Thanksgivings pull ranks.
Tomorrow is elusive.
Celebrate real thanks.

Ignore the calendar. Straddle the isthmus.
Tomorrow is elusive.
Celebrate Christmas.

Ignore the calendar. Give an ardent kiss.
Tomorrow is elusive.
Celebrate true bliss.

Ignore the calendar. Triumph lies within.
Tomorrow is elusive.
Celebrate each win.
