Time And Place - Poem by David Taylor

There is a place far, far away
In a small corner of space
A space that takes its place in time
A time that takes its stand in eternity
This place so far away
It takes a tiny part of space, of time.

There is a place far, far away
Existing in a small corner of the mind
A mind that thinks I am
Thinks many things from time to time
This place so far away
It takes a tiny corner of this mind.

Before space, before time
Beyond this mind, impossible to define
All pervading, always present
Never fading, self sufficient
It makes this tiny part of space, of time
A place full of wonder
Full of love that is divine.
