The past is long gone 
from here 
there is no way back 
how could there be 

The present is over too quickly 
for feeble desires 
to have any effect 
except to hide peace 

The future races ahead 
forever out of reach 
of dreamy wishes 
and useless plans 

And yet when I rest 
in the endless now 
every need is satisfied 
in ways never imagined

Nirmala, from ‘Gifts With No Giver’
