One moment we are laughing & playing with loved ones. Another moment we find ourself caught in the threshold between life & death. Such is life…..or such is death ?
With the current pandemic situation, there has been an awakening; a realisation to live life to the fullest & in the present; Make the best of the time on hand. Every Today is a gift & a hope to see another day.
To make more memories,
To laugh some more.
To hug our kids a few more times,
To talk to parents without looking at the time,
To throw a glance as he fixes dinner,
To give the nod when asked – honey do I look thinner ?
To pray a little more, To thank a little more.
To give a little more, To seek a little more.
Sing, dance, read, write;
Play, Pray, talk, walk;
Sleep, Weep, fight, fright;
Dream, scream, hike, spike;
Dribble, scribble, wander, ponder;
Chuckle, buckle, cuddle, huddle;
Today is a present that is precious beyond means.
Tomorrow is a box who’s contents are unseen.
Don’t hold back. Its the season to let go.
As the leaves fall off and the trees go bare,
Watch them stand there, with all their dare.
Let go off all that burdens your heart.
Wipe the slate clean and make a new start .
Make place for love & care & light,
Like the beautiful dazzling festive lights.
The lights shine brighter on plain canvas,
So why hold on to internal ruckus ?
Easen up, lighten up, weed out your list,
Bid adieu to those who make you clench your fists.
And Keep those close in prayer & heart,
Who keep you atop their priority chart.
They’re worth your time & love & share,
Go on & express with all your flair.
To those you have had to leave behind,
The paths didnt meet, so what…never mind.
Move on, Go on, Smile on, Live on…..
Keep going each day….on & on & on.
But hold on a little for the beautiful showers,
Rain, snow or the fragrant sunlit flowers.
Experience the moment & feel its wealth,
Express gratitude for every breath !!
Like the seasons, people will come & go,
Our days here are written,
Let’s live them some more !!
