I used to think about eternity or eternal time a lot.. 

and I've always felt that time.. is curious.

It's a mystery.

And it's a miracle, too.


It's one of many wondrous creations of Jehovah.

He created time for us humans so that we can live IN it.

I mean, really, what would become of us if, from tomorrow, time ceases to exist?

Can you grasp that concept? The non-existence of time? 

Our brains cannot escape the logical, linear order of time.



Our lives now are filled with moments that are brutally short.

Plus, each moment is irreversible. 

You make one mistake, and you are done. 

The one you loved but had to let go is not coming back.

The thing you did you wish you hadn't done can't get undone.


But in the paradise, things will be different.

You are going to have endless new opportunities to do, undo, redo anything that you choose.


So, each moment will have more heaviness or weight.

While now, how we feel about each moment is determined by how much time we have before we die.

If you feel like you've got only 10 years to live, then every single moment will feel shorter than if you were young,

maybe in your 20's, where time feels slow and life feels endless.


Then, each moment you so enjoy and cherish will have eternity in itself,

it will feel like you are swimming in eternity itself!


In the meantime,

eternity will turn into a single moment.


However long we will have lived-even thousands of years-the time we will have lived will feel like a moment when we look back.

See, eternity and a moment are similar to one another.


Each moment that passes us

will be eternally connected to our past and to our endless future events.

In a sense, a moment has become eternity!

Because we will see eternity in each moment.  



That is how I came to write this simple poem..

Originally written in Korean, so I can't deliver the same feelings but I tried.





Into the everlasting moment



Thought it’d last forever

An old diary

With faded pictures

Of vague memories


Let’s be together forever

It was the eternity

That I saw in her eyes

That night.


Moments that had eternity

All buried in time

To be remembered by no one

As if nothing happened


Oh, I see

A moment is merely a moment

What was eternal wasn’t me

It was time


Now I’m going

Into the eternal memory of the one

Who created time

Who remembers every moment of my life


Into the days when

Eternity becomes a moment

A moment becomes eternity

When all of my moments will become

Eternity eternally



(I'd be happy to receive any linguistic corrections on this, and please share with us how you think and feel about eternal life)
