This Moment

It’s this moment
That actually counts.
Not the one before,
Not the one after.
Only this to something amounts.

We only get a glimpse
To keep in memory’s store.
Just one chance
To live it
Or keep wanting for more.

So stop looking
Hither and thither.
For before you know
It will be gone.
It will wither.

It could be happy.
It could be sad.
But unlike some others,
You got it
Isn’t a bargain so bad.

Make it your own
And it will make you its.
Embrace it whole-heartedly
For it’s worth much more
Than all your ‘one day’ lists.
