This is what you’ve been waiting for. All that striving and attaining And you almost missed it. Head buried in books Or neck hung low to read the hand-held screen. THIS Not the agenda or self-imposed schedule Not the to-do's and have to’s Or social media frenzy. THIS MOMENT All that planning for a future not yet unfolded Lost in stories real or imagined Fantasies of what you should have or would have done. And you almost missed it. This moment is fleeting. This moment is precious. You cannot buy back, will it, or plan for it ever again. This moment is all you’ve got. Do not lose sight of THIS. Even if you have to be reminded Again and again, This is all that truly matters. Though it will be gone in a moment, It is yours to hold and embody. This is what you’ve been waiting for. This moment. This is your one precious life.
