SLOW DOWN, LIFE IS WORTH IT
Where does the time go
Do you watch the second-hand
Do you keep track of hours gone by
Are we so busy in life we don’t see
We don’t even think to wonder why?
That life is passing us by
Not long ago I remember
Seeing jack-o-lanterns and ghosts
I awaited for that nice brown turkey
Then it seems we were making a toast.
We waited and endured the winter
We huddled around the hearth
We couldn’t wait to shed those coats
And put away those boots
We dreamed of swimming and boats.
Now Spring is almost here
And we made it through dark days
We watch as the sun melts snow
We run for our shorts and tees
Where in the world did the time go?
Don’t forget to stop and breathe
Appreciate all those in your life
Take a moment and look around
Don’t let life just pass you by
Listen to the birth of Spring’s new sounds.
