Has Anyone Got The Time Poem by Derek. A. Sim


Dreams live far in the future,
Memories dwell back in the past,
The only time that is real,
Is now, and it surely won't last,
This is the moment to live,
The only time that is true,
All other times are irrelevant,
Now is the time to be you.
The time to enjoy, is here now,
Because "now", will not happen again,
This time is unique and un-charted,
So make happy the memories that remain.
You may plan for the future you wish,
You may save, and prepare, even steer,
But the future is coming; you can't change it,
Re-arrange it, or stop it, or veer.
On arrival, it's "now"; you must live it,
For in a fleeting moment, it's gone,
Then all that is left is the memory,
The future is coming……………….it's gone!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this piece soon after my Father died, when I was 12yrs old. It was at this time that I realised that everything in this life has an expiry date. I still write most days, I am now 54yrs old and I still carry the scar of that time.
