Today

Yes, it is true that we have dreams

And seek a happiness we have not yet seen.

Through the haze a bright star ever gleams

Leading us on towards some new and far off land.

But the far off land is barren and the star is long extinct

And all that we have is today.

It is not very much.

Did we ask so very much ?  Too much ?

We only asked that the whole thing should make sense

But now that doesn’t seem possible.

Let us then take today – lest we lose that as well.

And let us give it all we have.

Let us give ourselves to this day.

6th May 1964
