A Moment In Time

What need of we the future
nor of the fading past
We live within each moment
as if it were the last

The time is now for sowing
what we intend to reap
The time is now for giving
what we intend to keep

The time is now for loving
with all our heart and soul
The time is now for mending
the breaking of the whole

The time is now for taking
what others want to give
The time is now for making
the life we want to live

The time is now for laughing
the music of the soul
The time is now for weeping
for losing sight the goal

The time is fast approaching
when time at last will end
The time to give accounting 
for what we never spend

So live each precious moment
and make each moment last
For in each precious moment
is the future and the past
