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.
