I agree with you. We cannot catch present; by the time we realize it; it has already passed and become past. In absolute sense; past, present and future are the same; part of the unseen.

It is an attribute of the One-True-God that he knows the seen or present and the unseen:
[23:93] Knower of the unseen and of the seen! Exalted therefore is He above all that which they associate with Him!

I think there is nothing from Buddha to live in the present and to ignore past and future.
