A Fleeting Moment, Here Today Gone Tomorrow

How many times have you heard the expression, 

"Here Today, Gone Tomorrow?" 

Is it about time; that things will always or never be here in the present? Are things about to happen or will happen? Is the end near, or will things continue and be permanently repeated or is it the last of days, weeks, even decades, centuries or millenniums? 

Does it relate to age, young today, old tomorrow? Are we early or late? Is it finished and over or is it frequent and regular or is it infrequent and rare? 

How about now, or yesterday? Soon, or in the past? 

How long does it last here, a short time or a long time? Where is here and where is gone? Is it modern and fashionable, new, in the now? Maybe old-fashioned, with pauses and interludes.  Is it immature or mature, or just random points in time, schedules and agendas, a stage, a phase between the here and gone? The seasons, or just the turning points and the deciding moments of a particular fleeting moment in time?

Here today, gone tomorrow, existing or appearing in one place for a short period of time, available now but soon gone, such as an opportunity, in the blink of an eye. 

A fleeting moment. Here today, gone tomorrow.
