~ Stop To Smell The Flowers ~
We live in a world that seems to
pass us by,
We hurry to and fro passing things without a sigh.
Waking up in the morning, not taking heed,
That the sun is shining and birds eating seed.
The air smells so fresh of wild flowers from the field,
But our windows are down, cool air do we feel.
Walking out to the car late at night,
Not noticing the twinkling stars in our sight.
We pass our parks so covered with green,
Not knowing the fun we could have, of memories keen.
Soon life will pass us by too,
In that event, what will we do?
Will we feel that our life has passed us by,
Or will we take heed and give it a try?
To stop and see the dew fresh on the grass,
Hearing the songs of birds in their bath.
Life can be what we want it to be,
Just open our eyes that we may see.
There is joy and peace that comes from our earth,
One only has to open their eyes and search.
