Life-Time


A life-time is not what's between,
The moments of birth and death,
but between my two deep breaths;

A life-time is one moment between
lub-dub of heart beats, or between
flip flop of eye lids... ever keen;

seeing 'n' feeling, opening 'n' closing eyes,
at times time fail to limit the life.

when the present, the here, the now,
That's all the life I get,
I live each moment in full,
In kindness, in peace, without regret.

when I split past, present and future,
more I expect from life, than I get,
anger, envy, pride and desire, regret,
whole span I can't live a moment
life fail to withstand time's assault !

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
