Celebrating Now

The time spent on ‘it might have been’
is less than an invention, though
somehow still worth our mentioning,
if only as food for sweet dreams.

The time spent on ‘it might still be’
has slightly more validity,
For so very often, it seems,
the greatest deeds follow great dreams.

And yet, the time spent on the present
is the time that bears the fruit,
For our actions bring the flower to bloom
that our dreams have given root.
