Here And Now

With youth, I lived like time was free
To waste as though there were no end
Of years that seemed so far away
Too young to know about regrets
Of borrowed time or what could be
No promise of a second chance
Allowing me another day
When here and now holds the key
To wake the dreams I left in sleep
And play what music makes me dance
And hear the sounds of what is clear
In youth, I took no time to hear

The wind that rustles through the trees
Whose branches stretch like arms that reach
Skyward, just to touch the sun
And grasp the rain that falls upon
The earth and all the life it brings
With notes that makes the tin roof sing
Like quiet songs of ocean waves
They soothe the souls of all who take
The time to listen, becomes so clear
As youth, we take no time to hear
What age and widsom now allow
To know that life is here and now
