All That We Have...


we cannot go back
not for one half-breath
not for a moment
under the sun
we cannot borrow
one jot from tomorrow
all that we have, love
is now...then its gone

treasure the measure
of love you are holding
savor the flavor
of its tender sigh
for who knows, tomorrow
our joy may be sorrow
and hello a prelude
to parting's good-bye

we cannot cradle
the moment impending
we cannot reach back
to retrieve yesterday
all that we have, love
within our power
is this little moment
slipping away


I'm doing dishes; this song 'This Old Road" came on and sparked a thought. Hope you are having
a beautiful now!
