A Poem

received, I do not know the author, but it is very appropriate for me today.

I was regretting the past

And fearing the future.
Suddenly my Lord was speaking:
“My NAME is I AM.”
He paused.
I waited.  He continued.

“When you live in the past with its mistakes
and regrets, it is hard.  I am not there.”
My name is not…I WAS.

“When you live in the future, with its problems
and fears, it is hard.  I am not there.”
My name is not…I WILL BE.

“When you live in this moment…
It is not hard.  I am here.
My name is…I AM.”
