TAKE THE TIME
Take the time to pause and wonder,
At the things you see today,
The brilliant hues of morning sunrise
The racing gulls upon the bay.
Take the time to feel the breezes.
Soft and cool upon your face,
Savor every special moment,
Of your lover's sweet embrace.
Take the time to smell the roses,
As they make the air so sweet,
Look in wonder and amazement,
At miles and miles of swaying wheat.
Take the time to smile at children,
As they learn about their world,
Keep their sense of awed excitement,
As new mysteries are unfurled.
Take the time to say I love you,
These are words that one should share,
How sad to say, when life is ending,
"But they have to know I care".
Take the time while there is time,
For all of us, time has to end.
Let's hope that every second left,
Brings love and happiness, my friend.
