Are You Rushing Through Life?

Are you rushing through
life and missing living it?
Savor the moments,

the sun on your skin
on a cold winter's morning;
the love in your heart.

What if you just basked
in the warmth, appreciate
the life you have now?

What if you tasted
and smelled and felt the music,
the bird's morning song?

What if you camped out
in the now, lit a candle
to light today's path?

What if today was
the only day you have? It
is. Listen! Time stills.
