Don´t let life pass you by.Life passes too quickly Just look at the words of John Lennon below.

Life Happens

They grow up so fast.  ... Make time for them
They grow up so fast. ... Make time for them

Life Happens

Life is what happens to you,While you´re busy making other plans.

John Lennon written for his son Sean. Taken from the song

¨Beautiful Boy¨

.......You´re not bothered, today then?

Don´t want to join us.,

OK. It´s your choice, how you use up yor time,

Let life pass you by if that how you like it.

.................................................................

Let life pass you by, then....

Don´t smell the roses, or feel breeze in your hair.

Don´t dangle your feet in a cool Summer stream,

Just walk past the flowers you once wore in your hair.

............................................................................

Your beautiful daughter is looking at you,

Looking up at your face with love in her eyes,

Unconditional, naive devotion,- it´s Mummy,

You can´t see it, can you?, letting life pass you by.

Let life pass you by, your daughter will grow,

She´s already a beauty with talents and gifts,

You don´t seem to know!

You WILL want to know , when in time she shines,

But it may be too late if life passes you by.

................................................................

Wake up!! Dear old friend, I´m trying to help you,

Wake up! Smell the coffee, look out at the trees,

The apples, the pears, the flowers and leaves.!

Your daughter adores you, return her devotion,

Open your eyes, get rid of ´dark´notions

Don´t let life pass you by, It passes too quickly.

Take heart.! Step forward! We´re with you.!!

(life is what happens to you while you´re

busy making other plans.)

Dim, So true , so true!!! We get caught up in others lives too and let life pass us by!! I believe women are the heart of the home, but some are so busy doing for others they lose track of themelves and overlook the blessed sweet moments with the overload. This poem should be printed and sent to every woman everywhere. Thank you for this beautiful reminder and poem. So glad your back Dim!!! ((((((((((HUGS))))))))))

So beautiful, Dim - and so very relevant. How often we don't appreciate the NOW because we're busy worrying about what WILL BE.

I agree with every word you penned here. We named our first son Sean after beautiful beautiful boy. It's tough for many to keep smiles on their faces going through tough times, but if you don't try, then yes you miss out on so many things. Life is to short to stay unhappy. Thanks for the share, I really enjoyed this poem.

Wow! another awesome poem that captures how much we can miss if we don't pay attention. I agree, we can miss out on some of life's most beautiful moments if we do not chose to be present.

Thanks for sharing such profound reminder.
