Now Only - Poem by ifedayo oshin

Days fly past fast
As the eagle swooping swiftly
To the assembly ground
The place of an unusual meal

Hours run fast
As Lewis on the course
The Olympian in victory strides
A bid for the medal of honour

Time goes to return in turn
As the mist at dawn of dusk
Just now wet and cold
Then sooner dry and warm

Life moves on and on
As sunrise to set
In a course of nature shifts
Living and working the cosmos

This day this hour
This time this life
Now only we have
For then is ever never.
