The Sitting Bench

Sit with me awhile, won't you?

The day is hot, the sun caressing

I need a little rest

Sit with me awhile, will you?

I long to glance and seize the scenery

With my eyes wide

Sit with me awhile can you?

Take in the flowers, trees, and bees

And birds who chirp and please

Sit with me today

Join me for a drink and let us think

On the good times we have shared

Sit with me tomorrow

Keep it up lest sorrow overtake us

Enjoying the greenery

Sit with me awhile

I love to watch you smile

And grin with those somewhat imperfect teeth

It's those quirky things those little imperfections that

I love most

Sit with me and drink tea

Sit with me and drink beer

Sit with me and just be.

Hi Blondey,

"Sit with me and just be"

I love your poem. In this 24/7 rat race of a world we need to learn just to be and enjoy each others company.

Voted up and away and sharing. :)

Have a good day. :)

Hi Sueswan, good to see you thank you too, sitting and reflecting IS a great thing to do as you say in this busy age...I went to eat out for Easter on Sunday and I noticed (some) people were kinda stressed, in a hurry, and a little demanding to the clerks there...and I thought....you know that....it would be better to "slow things down" and just "be."

Hi Audrey,

So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks and have a great day to you both.

Yes, I would like to sit and take a time out from craziness. A nice way to remind us to appreciate life. Like the picture of the sweet, simple bench.

Rose, this is delightful. I am going through some very difficult things right now and it was as if Jesus was saying "Come sit with me." Thanks and blessings.
