Take time to smell the flowers
To hold a small child’s hand,
Feel the gentle breezes
As they blow across the land.
Take time to watch the sunset
And walk upon the shore,
Feel the sand between your toes
As you have done before.

Take the time to listen
To the music of your soul,
Rest, restore and rediscover
The things that make you whole.
Take time to splash in puddles
And watch the diamond sky.
Take time to watch the river
As it flows and rushes by.

Stand beside the weeping willow
With its leaves in the water
Take time to sit and quietly talk
With your precious son or daughter.
Enjoy the time you spend
With photographs and books,
Remembering the days gone by~
Those special loving looks.

View the dewdrops on the roses ~
See the daffodils in spring
Watch the moonlight on the garden,
See the birds upon the wing.
Take time to see the best in people
Relish your days and hours
Enjoy the seasons given to you ~
Take time to smell the flowers.
