I saw you this morning as you
hurried on by-
Never stopping to wave,
or just say "Hi".
You never saw the flowers
God sent your way-
You hardly ever have a
kind word to say.

I saw you this evening as you
made your way home-
A frown still on your face,
another day gone!
If I could search inside your
heart what would I see-
A sad, quiet man - one
who's lonely?

What I would give to be
in your shoes-
To have all those precious
minutes you never use.
What I would give to enjoy
one more day-
To just be able to kneel down
and pray.

Don't waste the minutes, the
seconds, the hours-
Take a little time to stop and
smell the flowers.
The minutes of our lives
are slipping away-
Before we know it we have
lost another day.

What I would give to simply
reach out my hand-
In Love and Peace to all my
Cherish every minute - Its all
yours alone-
You can't retrieve it once it
is gone!

I sit on my porch and the
world I can see-
Sitting back in the shadows..
My wheelchair and me!

Authors Note: Today may be all we have.
Take a deep breath.
Smell the flowers!

With your every word, I could hear my own clock ticking away. You set off the alarm's of life and gave the world a wake up call never to sleep their breath away.

Time is the most precious gift we have - how sad we squander it so. We need to take each moment in time and give to it our love and kindness for those in our lives.
Good Message, Good Thought
