Sometimes there is no time.

No time for singing another song...

Lifetimes are how long?

Have we ever made the most of even one full day?

See results without voting

Seize the day. There is no other way.


Sometimes....

Sometimes there’s no time for speaking what we should say.

Sometimes there’s no time for reading throughout an entire day.

Sometimes there’s no time for seeing the hurt in another’s eyes.

Sometimes there’s no time for reasoning to make more choices wise.

Sometimes there’s no time for hugging to ease one child’s cries.

Sometimes there’s no time for noticing the blinking of fireflies.

Sometimes there’s no time for pondering what course we ought to take.

Sometimes there’s no time for saving the heart that soon will break.

Sometimes there’s no time for pausing along life’s rushing stream.

Sometimes there’s no time for resting to seek a brand new dream.

Sometimes there’s no time for knowing what might be coming next.

Sometimes there’s no time for writing a loving letter’s text.

Sometimes there’s no time for catching just that one more breath.

Sometimes there’s no time for weighing an empty life’s own death.

What will you take time for this weekend, and are you planning to take it, or just taking it as impulse strikes?

If my pain allows me to see a friend who's only here until tomorrow, I will take the time to get ready.

Taking the time each spring day now to watch spring come forth in all its glory and appreciating each moment. Life is way too short...

Perspycacious: Since in truth, we can only live one moment at a time during our living day, I manke every moment as full and as important as the next to come.

TENKAY - We cannot take a summer day to smell the roses in winter. Sometimes there is only time for doing things now.

Dave Mathews - Each moment you do that becomes a fully-lived moment.

May you always have the energy, will, and wisdom to live your moments in that way.
