The Moment

Both in this life and in the next

Relish the small and simple things we will

Even as we disregard their importance at the moment

Very soon we will wish to live again in that minute

Innocent of things to come after

There is more to life than the past, however

You would do well to remember that

 

Things are more the precious for the brevity of them in our lives, knowing that we can cherish things for but a small moment before they are lost to the ravages of time help us to recognize their importance in the here and now.

If only…

If only we actually remembered that in the moment itself.
