Eden for Eternity


We spend all our lives searching.
For an escape. For a better reality. For paradise.
For that intangible Eden. 

We waste our days trying to return.
To that garden where perfection lied.
But the past cannot be reached.
It is lost.

Eden is not in our memories or our visions of tomorrow.
It is in our present.
It is every second we make precious.
The time we spend meaningfully. 

Time never pauses for the present.
We always live in today.
Our family and friends are our Utopia.
The people we love are Garden of Eden.
That is Eternity.

I really like this, will wait until morning to read it again. It's after midnight and I'm a bit sleepy to comment at the moment. :)
