Let's Enjoy What We Have...



 February, it seems now, was a blur of babies-birds-blooms-books-baking beauty!
...though at the time it seemed like a lot of messes and modest busyness:)

Let’s enjoy what we have while we have it
For time’s surefire undertow
Draws its ‘before’ into ‘after’
And its ‘hold’ to ‘letting go’

Let’s enjoy what we have while we have it
Time is neither friend nor foe
Bastion of both tears and laughter
…after 'hold' comes 'letting go'

Let’s enjoy what we have while we have it
Lest tomorrow we regret
Missing what Today once offered
Before ‘After' sealed its Let

Let’s enjoy what we have while we have it
Live and love full-well because
Soon, no matter what Now’s grant is
It slips to a world that was

Let's enjoy what we have while we have it
Life's 'Best Ever' wears a veil
Soft and slow its threads unravel 
To reveal Bygone's regale
