Take Time


Take Time

Take time to take.....
~the small gifts so hesitatingly offered by a friend
~the proud handmade present from a child.

Take time to listen.....
~to the old man's too often told tale
~to a husband's words of love.

Take time to share......
~a moment with a lonely soul for loneliness shared becomes love.
~a sorrow with a bereaved friend, for sorrow shared becomes comfort.

Take time to touch.....
~another human which means I care for you, I trust you..
~another life for that is what life is all about.

Take time for each other..... for nothing else is that important.

Take time to live, to dance for fun, to sing for joy, to paint or sew or create a beautiful gift.

Take time to watch.....

~the snow swirling outside the windowpane,

~the flames dancing in the fireplace.

Take time for gladness..... for this faltering, fumbling world is, after all, mostly good!
