Time - Poem by Charles J. Kasper

Tomorrow lies beyond the pale
Yesterday may ne'er return
Today is all we have to hold
No matter how we yearn

Look for love and live for love
Remember words you held apart
Tacit, sweet unspoken thoughts
Locked forever in your heart

Count not the times of parting
Endless though they seem
Days and nights beyond enduring
Silent vigil, empty dream.

Count instead those precious moments
Brief, exquisite memories shared
A touch, a look. a laugh, a tear,
A time when someone cared.
