It seems the days go faster as I live from day to day
From sunrise to sunset, there is barely time to play
Mornings rise and shine with hope and meander like a stream
I wonder if I am awake or still lie deep in dream
A gentle breeze strikes the leaves to play their symphony
The sound so soft, the tune so short – never enough for me
Tomorrow and tomorrow slip through the time with ease
Today’s already come and gone, oh, stay if I asked you – please?
One year, five years, ten years more. How shall I bide my time?
What difference will I make during this journey that is mine?
My health – a gift – with which I serve ,to fulfill a promise made
To live with devotion and intent and never more to simply fade
No more routine, nor habit, nor mindless wandering by
I want to live with purpose and to keep a watchful eye
Be mindful of the treasures with the dawning of each day
That they can be discovered and not just thrown away
To really make a difference and know that I was here
My eyes must be wide open and I must not live in fear
She and he are with me – when I am mindful of them both
“I am with you always”, she swore a solemn oath….
He stands in my garden assisting Mother Nature’s hand
A poor, dirt farmer scratched a living in the sand
Time stands still for no one – neither you, nor I, nor they
And so enjoy each moment and the beauty in each day.
