The Best We Have...





The best is not yet left to come
The best we have is now
Ah, who knows what in morrow’s sum
Will fill its who-where-how

For what has passed will not return
And what waits, none can tell
Then pray with what we have we learn
To treat its treasure well

...and with the gift swift time allots
Of Now we have and hold
We ought to cherish ticks and tocks
Like jots of precious gold

And ever for the joy of love
Live today, kind and glad
For it could be the tally of
The Best we ever had
