The Present

Tomorrow is the future
Yesterdayís the past
But the present is the moment
that eternally will last

You can live for your tomorrows
You can stay within your past
But youíre living in the present
and the presentís going to last

The things you do tomorrow
and those done yesterday
Are all done in the present
that you live along the way

You canít avoid the present
You canít escape itís claim
For both History and Future
are just tenses of itís name

If your living for the moment
Then all time belongs to you
So be sure you use it wisely
for it stays your whole life through
