we only have the now

this inestimable instant upon which we stand

our foundation for all our time

crumbling away behind us as it is restored before

a bridge moving between our history and our dreams

a place from which both are considered

coming to this now at any other time

the result of our considerations would be altered

what time has built, what we hope for it to build

our skew upon ourselves

 

this one precious instant

all we will ever have

until time itself shall end
