Now,Then And When


Now, then and when.


Just give me now
not what's before,

that's then
not what's


that's when
now doesn't

matter if it's
then or when
now is what

I need "now"
now is my

best friend
you can be

my now
though you weren't

back then
you can share

my now
till tommorrow

that's when
now will be

and we'll share it
once again
I need you

right now
and I'll need

you when
now is just

a memory
of way

back then
now is when

I'll give you
all my love,

and then
now until forever
will be

more than

"now and then"
give me now
and then

we'll share
all our whens.

Really, all we have is now. We are wise to delight in every moment. Too soon, now becomes when.

MFB Dude- you tie it all up. We can't have "then" without "now". "Be here Now"!

Seems like a entreaty whispered quite effectively.I am sure she cannot refuse such a beautiful request.

A good one.
