Omega and Alpha


End and beginning!  We are always on

The razor-edge between the fact and dream,

The dream becoming fact as moments flow.

The now in which we live is Rubicon;

We from the past to future cross its stream,

But ever it goes with us as we go.

Ever we bid goodbye; oblivion

Shuts gates behind us; and ever the gleam

Of new encounters makes our faces glow.

Each now receding lifts new horizon.

So let me greet tomorrow as my New

Year – nay, this very evening, nearer still.

Let me vow as each moment I break through

That, knowing little, I shall trust one Will !
