One minute ago

But what does it mean

A place of course in time

That we have all been

 

Even writing this poem

It’s been and gone

So why would I try

To carry on

 

Well I think the reason might be

That everything we do

Has a place in the future

But how that happens I haven’t a clue

 

When you think it doesn’t matter

Something you might do or say

Just remember your future

Is only one minute away

 

So I know that my past

Has made the person I am

And what I do now

Will be part of some plan

 

A decade, a year, an hour

It all blends into one

One minute turns into a day

And what is done can’t be undone

 

So I know one thing for sure

A man only has so many heartbeats in his time

So I will try and do my best for you all

This is how I will use mine

 

And to use a famous quote

From a hero of mine

I will only pass this way

Just one time
