Past, Present, Future


Life, lived; not by the, present, contained within the Now,
so thinking of a recollect - of what your mind will allow

means present becomes, neglect - and past, does future infect,

no change can be made- of what past has played,
to live in its control- decays the soul

for only in now, can a person be whole - only in now, can a body contain the soul.

thought of a future that has not yet played- a worry of a nothing, means, now, gets
mislaid.

no future is set - none should forget

if a present moment in now is given neglect-
a life will be stained with the inks of regret.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
