-"Sometimes.. Take Time"-
Throughout our busy days
In the chaos and the craze,
While we strive to live like kings,
We forget IMPORTANT things!
The beauty of a tree...
Ah, yes, a child's wonder...
Or of a rose in bloom...
Do we dare to ponder?
Seemingly insignificant matters like thoughts and prayers and such...
Well, maybe, "We'll do it later... 'cause it doesn't matter much!"
Not only of our time is our sparing small,
But with all our 'gotta' haves', we don't recognize the call
Of someone in need, a stranger or a friend.
Maybe, just a helping hand is all we need to lend.
You see? If it doesn't fit... within our schedule range,
Our accustomed style... we simply cannot change!
"I'm not going that way..."
"I don't think I can..."
"I've got to get my 'this'..."
"That's not within my plan..."
These are some 'excuses' that we're guilty of each day,
But if we thought a moment... I bet we'd find a way
To make a call or two or help someone in need,
If we did without a little, it would magnify indeed!
If our material possessions were all just stripped away,
Would we be left standing... naked and in dismay?
Could we look inside our soul and be content in what we see
Or would we make some changes and throw away the key?
To the door of 'think of me'... and be sure it's locked up tight,
'Cause a whole new door can open when you're showered with the light!
No longer will you have to worry about your little self,
'Cause the care you give to others will not remain upon a shelf!
You'll be surrounded in ways you can't imagine thus.
You'll feel much more significant and no more like a 'wuss'!
The rewards in life are plenty.
They are there for all of us,
If we do a little caring
And refocus how we fuss!
So, let us all each day find some time for others.
Share our thoughts and feelings with our sisters and our brothers.
I don't mean just family here, although they're number one,
But also, with the other souls that may not always be as fun!
Let me just say... that I'm guilty of this, too.
That's why I'm sharing thoughts as I think of you,
And if tomorrow I'm not here, 'cause we never know what's next.
I want my family and friends to know and not to feel perplexed.
To say the way I feel... that I love each and every one...
Just doesn't seem adequate or that my task is done!
So, if there's any doubt in your minds as of today,
Remember this I've said and I mean just what I say!
I want to say one more thing, this most of all...
May you each know God's Blessings. May They be showered on you ALL!!!
So, when we get so busy, as we really do,
Let's try to think of others a little bit more, too.
Whether one gives to a stranger or a friend,
It inspires others to spark a warm and caring trend!

|Poet note: We often get so busy in our lives, we don't take time out to make sure those we Love, KNOW we Love
them or notice others could use some kind words, support, etc.. Yes, life can be all consuming at times but some-
times there are things in our lives that can be set aside or even omitted. We can have all sorts of materialistic things,
both substantial and minute, but if we allow life to pass us by without taking notice to what's most important, which
isn't anything money can buy, then at some point in our later years, we will feel cheated and like we never really lived.
Quotes by Artsieladie:“The most beautiful things in life are not seen through the eyes, but are seen and felt through, with, and in the heart.”
“The true worth of a person is measured by the size of their heart, not the size of their wallet.”
