THE PAST IS GONE FOREVER.
The past is gone forever!
Nothing therein can be changed,
Not even a moment.
The future is unknown and,
For all you know, this might
Be the last day of your life!
Be mindful of the present therefore!
Treasure each precious moment and,
Should memories press for recognition,
Suffer only happy ones to enter your mind
Lest your present, which is all you have,
Be robbed of its joy and tranquillity.
