Come   Listen
verb
Come  v. i.  (past came; past part. come; pres. part. coming)  
1.
To move hitherward; to draw near; to approach the speaker, or some place or person indicated; opposed to go. "Look, who comes yonder?" "I did not come to curse thee."
2.
To complete a movement toward a place; to arrive. "When we came to Rome." "Lately come from Italy."
3.
To approach or arrive, as if by a journey or from a distance. "Thy kingdom come." "The hour is coming, and now is." "So quick bright things come to confusion."
4.
To approach or arrive, as the result of a cause, or of the act of another. "From whence come wars?" "Both riches and honor come of thee!"
5.
To arrive in sight; to be manifest; to appear. "Then butter does refuse to come."
6.
To get to be, as the result of change or progress; with a predicate; as, to come untied. "How come you thus estranged?" "How come her eyes so bright?" Note: Am come, is come, etc., are frequently used instead of have come, has come, etc., esp. in poetry. The verb to be gives a clearer adjectival significance to the participle as expressing a state or condition of the subject, while the auxiliary have expresses simply the completion of the action signified by the verb. "Think not that I am come to destroy." "We are come off like Romans." "The melancholy days are come, the saddest of the year." Note: Come may properly be used (instead of go) in speaking of a movement hence, or away, when there is reference to an approach to the person addressed; as, I shall come home next week; he will come to your house to-day. It is used with other verbs almost as an auxiliary, indicative of approach to the action or state expressed by the verb; as, how came you to do it? Come is used colloquially, with reference to a definite future time approaching, without an auxiliary; as, it will be two years, come next Christmas; i. e., when Christmas shall come. "They were cried In meeting, come next Sunday." Come, in the imperative, is used to excite attention, or to invite to motion or joint action; come, let us go. "This is the heir; come, let us kill him." When repeated, it sometimes expresses haste, or impatience, and sometimes rebuke. "Come, come, no time for lamentation now."
To come, yet to arrive, future. "In times to come." "There's pippins and cheese to come."
