Present

I do not know from whence you came
Nor do I even care

I do not know where you are going
For that is in the air

What matters most to me my love
Is the fact that you are here

And this moment is a precious gift
As long as you are near

  6. You have written this poem with so much thought and understanding of the passing time and yet you have shown great appreciation of the moment you are in with some one you care for. This is a difficult task in poetry writing and it seems like you did it with comfort and ease.
    Time is kind of strange in this manner that if we let go of the present we mind loose
    the magic so I value present time too.
    Thanks for stopping by and sharing your poem with all of us.

    on how to be a man..
    he leaves when i'm 3..
    then one day he speaks..
    and tales me in the operating
    room of my few week old
    child's surgery.. make
    sure you raise
    him like a man
