be present

by Sandy M. Humphrey

you can choose
to look back
wax sentimental
or to dream
for the future
starryeyed for
what might be
yet if you are
so inclined
you can revel
in today
be present
in the moment
as it comes
your way

be present
in each emotion
as it flows
through your veins
life altering
chance making
dream breaking
breath taking
never faking
ever waking
moment of lifetime
be present
