An Unexpected Gift

Slow down
Look around you
What do you see
What do you hear
Time is yours today
A gift to treasure

Slow down
Take a deeper breath
A slower step
A longer rest
Time is yours today
A gift to treasure

Slow down
Don’t rush to fill each moment
Don’t rush from place to place
Just enjoy the gift today
And just Be

The Time is Now

As I reflect on the gift of life and the mortality of our being, this came to mind:

“If tomorrow were my last day on earth,
What would you say to me?
What would you do?
What would I say to you?
What would I do?

If tomorrow were your last day on earth,
What would I say to you?
What would I do?
What if I had no time to say or do all that I wanted to?
For instead of tomorrow, the time is now.
To say I love you
I forgive you
Please forgive me
I thank you
For all that you are
For all that you have meant to me
For all that you have helped me become
Wait not for tomorrow
For the time is now.”
