There's no feature in Mail to allow this to be done directly. However, you could create a script with Automator or AppleScript that sends the desired message when run, and then attach that script as a "reminder" to an iCal event.

I cannot believe with all of the advancements MAC makes that you cannot schedule a simple email. These days you can schedule a tweet, a blog post, a Facebook msg, etc...

If its just a no frills plain text message the simplest solution is to set-up an event in iCal and select 'Email' as the alert type - have a play!
Though I really hope this feature can be added to Mail as I would use it daily and (not including this thread) there are plenty of posts on the web from people wanting to schedule when their email is collected and sent - especially those who have read a certain book by Tim Ferris.
If you need to do this on Mac within your email client you can do this using Microsoft Outlook (you'll have to buy it of course) - I have used Outlook but I prefer using Mail / Address book / iCal etc

I am using a Macbook pro running OSX ver 10.9 I am attempting to send an email at a future date. I wrote and apple script and compiled it as an application and then used calender to launch the application at the date and time I specified. When I test it, it works fine. However when I set one up to launch in four or five days and the computer goes to sleep it doesn't work. Any thoughts as to what to do.

Yup, your script won't fire if the machine is asleep. There's really no way around that. You'd have to either make sure the machine doesn't go to sleep or use some kind of mailing service.
