The Gift of Now

song bird3

Who can say
what tomorrow will bring
no seer can truly know
a million tomorrows
float in forever horizons
pick one and ten more appear.

Who can erase
what happened yesterday
can the moon
reverse its path?

The world exists
only in this moment
captured in the now
yet how seldom
do we fix our minds here
choosing instead to wallow
in our fears of tomorrow
regrets of yesterday
unaware of the precious
gift of now.
