What is this life if full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to wander through the fields,
To sample all that nature yields.
No time to watch our children grow,
And melt our hearts like sun does snow.
No time to savour every word,
Be they ones read, or they ones heard.
No time to cherish those most dear,
To keep them safe, and hold them near.
No time to yearn for all things past,
To mourn the fact your dreams don’t last.
No time at all unless we take,
A pause to breathe, not to forsake.
To not forsake our time on earth,
Embrace this life and all it’s worth.
