If yesterday is gone and tomorrow yet awaits,

then is today just an illusion, 

in time and space my mind creates, 

If all my memories are recalled 

from past and different times, 

is it me that I am thinking of, 

or of someone who occupied my mind, 

If in the future I have plans to fix, 

these obstacles that are in my midst, 

How can I in the here and now, 

when tomorrow does not yet exist, 

If now is everchanging, 

steadily sweeping future into the past, 

then is time just but an illusion, 

and I an actor in it,s cast.
