TIME FLOWS LIKE A RIVER

Time flows like a river,
It flows linearly,
Flowing forward,
Never backward,
And our lives follow its course,
Our entire existence bends to its rhythm,
But we are only along for a while,
We only get to ride the tide for a short time,
Yet we spend so much of our short ride regretting,
Regretting things we can’t change,
Fretting over water under the bridge,
Yet we spend so much of our short ride worrying,
Worrying about what will come after the next bend,
Worrying about the coming falls and rapids,
We forget to live in the moment,
To smile and love in the moment,
To soak up life and savor all the small moments,
Because the future is never promised,
And the past has already passed,
All we really have is right now.
