The Past Now Is History - Poem by Francis Duggan

The past now is history for you and for me
We only have memories of what used to be
At midnight this evening today will be gone
And time as ever does keep on ticking on
The now is all that does matter and the now is today
And tomorrow will come and time ticking away
It is only in memory we can relive the past
And each day for us one nearer to our last
When the wild born nesting birds whistle and sing
I cannot say i will be living next Spring
On how long we live there is no guarantee
Since death is for everyone and this includes me
Like all other life forms we are born to die
A mere fact of life and fact never lie.
