None of us knows

None of us knows
None of us knows
Inspired by musings with Dad on his 70th birthday

None of us knows
whether we have
a day, a year, a minute
or a hundred years.

We do not know
when our borrowed energy
will be given back
to the collective.

But, we do know
that we are in this world
at this moment
and this moment
is our chance
is our choice.

Because every moment
is possibly our last chance,
we choose to use it to
put good into the world,
to say a kind word,
to kiss,
to gaze at the moon,
to love our precious self.
