Sometimes I’m here,
But also trying to be there.
Therefore, I am nowhere.
To be here in this moment,
I must be fully present –
Taking in the sights and sounds
Listening with ears and heart and mind.
If I’m also trying to be there,
I miss the value and joy of here
And feel frustrated and anxious about there.
Don’t let me miss my best life
By trying to be both
Here and there.
Help me be in the present with all my being –
Enjoying the moment to the full
Before moving to the next.
Then I shall know I have truly lived.
