here and gone

here is but a time
and borrowed at best
shared with the world
as divinity’s guest

something of promise
of purpose unknown
a seed grown to shade
those next to be sown

living and learning
as consciousness wakes
perceiving, conceiving
through which it partakes

of beauty, of wonder
of joy and of pain
to eternal enrichment
of heaven’s domain

and then there returned
as night becomes dawn
united once more
with all it thought gone
