No time like the present:

Turning back,

Looking over,

Things will change.

Yesterday and tomorrow-

All yours.

But the present,

Such a wonderful gift,

Many don’t “get”.

They take it for granted:

Saving it for last,

Thinking they know what it is.



Maybe even pearls.

Don’t ruin such a surprise-

Lusting for simple things.

Take it with earnest.

It could be your last gift.
