This Moment, This Second--By Barbara Tate--United States

This Moment, This Second

I'm looking for forever
but finding just today
with trees dripping last night's rain
what am I to say?

Forecast calls for ice tonight
even though it's spring
read it in the Almanac
what will tomorrow bring?

No sense looking past right now
not for me to say
just this moment, just this second
living for today.
