Dikt på engelska om tiden - då och nu


Each bell, each stroke

Each bell marks
the passing time
Each stroke
A passing heart-beat
That will never pass again
Time marches patiently
And the tense is always ‘then’

You say I spend
To much time in the past
It might very well be true
I want joyful times to last
I relive what changed to fast
Well, darling, wouldn’t you?
The past’s the only thing true

I’m faithful to my
Many mistakes
The only thing
I dearly hold on to
If I screw up I’m bound to stay
Treat me good and I’m gone
Yeah, it’s confusing in a way

You say it’s all
Bad nostalgia and sentiment
It might very well be true
I know how things went
Thinking back is time well spent
Well, darling, wouldn’t you?
The past’s the only thing true

Today’s now is
Tomorrow’s then
A bad day is
A happy memory
To nourish and cherish well
There is just one today
Of it no one can know or tell

You say it’s now
Or never well shall live
It’s never as simple as that
I don’t know what today can give
But I’m certain of the one that went
Well, darling, wouldn’t you agree?
What was can’t ever again be
