Now Is All We've Got

We used to be inseparable
Forever

We use to have time as ours
Love will remember

Now we only have now
We have have ourselves

Our future not ours to tell
But our present ours to craft

Present is foundation of a hopeful future. Congrats!
O now! It disappears every nanosecond. However, the poem rests on the common assumption of the present. It carries time into a maleable state.
The poem draws a comparative study of relative time brilliantly. Dear friend Samuel, you're very promising but we expect more accuracy from you in future. Thank you very much for sharing your nice thought with us. Chandan
Oh dear, this poem has broken english so doesn't read right. Not very well put together but the thought in place is a very strong and pleasant. Congratulations on POTD
