  • What happened in the past has no bearing on this moment
    Right here, right now, is where I live
    And breathe and feel and hope and dream
    Tomorrow never comes, it's always this day, this moment
    This is what counts
    It can all change in a heartbeat
    Listen to it beat
    Focus on this moment
    Whatever life is
    This is it
    Right here, right now
    Are you here?
