Today Is Eternity


Precious moments
We spend a lifetime searching for them
We spend fortunes to obtain them
Counting the few
That pass on their way to eternity
Framing them all.
The older they become...
The closer we hold them.

But it is only today
Today is the only day we live
The only moment in the milleniums of time
That our moments are born.

The walls we've built that
Mark the good from bad
Til we're never completely sure
We've left none out
Left one small chance for bliss
Tearing and pressing
Til every ounce of it falls into your hands

When every moment surrenders to nothingness
We drift farther and farther away
From today, eternity, peace, bliss.
