Before we were where we are now,
Where were we?
Living life to the fullest,
Bemoaning a past that is long gone?
Where were we?

Tomorrow is only a concept,
Time in our minds.
Yesterday no longer exists,
All we have is now.

Now is our reality,
Take care to savor the moment,
It will never be here again.

(c)2008 Walt Hardester†
