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 we actually remembered that in the moment itself.
