Woman Moment

The present moment is a woman whom
I love though I have been unkind to her,
inviting other moments to my room:
the past or future that I would prefer.
But she has been with me for all my life
despite my foolish infidelity,
and now I vow to love her like a wife,
not pine for days long gone or yet to be.
To all her loveliness I have been blind
while fretting for the future or the past,
but when I dwell on her I always find
new beauties, so the old ones needn’t last.
I’m working for the future, the past my teacher,
but love the present and can always reach her.
