A Poem by Khalil Gibran : Time XXI

Time XXI

And an astronomer said, “Master, what of Time?”
And he answered:

You would measure time the measureless and the immeasurable.

You would adjust your conduct and even direct the course of your spirit according to
hours and seasons.

Of time you would make a stream upon whose bank you would sit and watch its
flowing.

Yet the timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness,

And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.

And that that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of
that first moment which scattered the stars into space.

Who among you does not feel that his power to love is boundless?

And yet who does not feel that very love, though boundless, encompassed within the
centre of his being, and moving not form love thought to love thought, nor from love
deeds to other love deeds?

And is not time even as love is, undivided and paceless?

But if in you thought you must measure time into seasons, let each season encircle all
the other seasons,

And let today embrace the past with remembrance and the future with longing.
