Evan Morse - The Silent Ship

The Silent Ship

Evan Morse

 

Life is often lived throughout the years without the thought of its presence,

Yesterday leads to today, and yet the aspect of life is not sensed.

There are only certain events that allow us to wake from this state,

To realize that life has already gone by, for it does not wait.

 

What you did tomorrow cannot be changed,

What you missed when you slept cannot be retained.

To do things again is a gift that we cannot possess,

It is a path that we cannot walk, a hill that we cannot crest.

 

Move in presence with time,

Or be lost in the past behind.

Life does not stop for those who do not grasp their day today.

For it is a silent ship already sent upon its way
