Here In The Present


Tell me of tomorrow,
I’ll tell you of today;
talk to me of long ago,
I’ll whisper come my way.

The past is but a memory,
the future yet to unfold;
it is here, today, in the present,
where I live, where my story is told.

Join me if you will,
for go back or forward I do not;
the place you want to be is here,
in this moment, now is all we’ve got.

Now, is the time for action,
now, the time for rest;
now, the time to spend with friends,
and the ones you love the best.

Here is where you are right now,
and here is where you’ll stay,
for it is always here and now,
it neither leaves nor goes away.

So join me in the present,
let’s see what we can do;
here and now, give it all you’ve got,
the choice is up to you.
