Now's Not Forever


Now's not forever,
our little life
here, then gone,
hardly worth
troubling over,
looking too closely
at what went wrong.
Better to remember
we are guests
each night
in our dreams,
preparing our best
for what's to come,
though they're never really
what they seem.
When all goes still,
and we're no more,
only then,
will we know
what for.
