Can you find just a little time in your busy, busy life?
Some time to rest for a long moment and just breathe
A little time to stop and think about life; all its treasures
Time to think on this temporary life you will ond day leave
Your time is of the essence; rushing moment to moment
No time to stop and consider; no time left to just ponder
Everything is so, so important; a top flight first priority
No time for dreaming; no time left to just sit and wonder
What did you worry over at this time just last year?
There must have been more than a million choices
But you can’t remember any of it now; it’s no wonder
All you hear is the current chorus of worried voices
Life is a tiny, tiny thing; a very small space of limited time
We fill it with things we think are such high priorities
We push all the other things out of our way; too far aside
Then stay busy ignoring realities, grabbing at possibilities
What of love? What of our short time here on this earth
Does that not matter in the scheme of the picture of it all?
What really matters in the end? Is it what we have done?
Or is it what we have been when the Lord comes to call?
Health and happiness are what matters in life here on earth
The smiles; the love; the moments we so cherish together
Everything else is simply a distraction; a timely illusion
The ones we love; the time we spend are what really matter
Take a deep breath; stop and consider the priorities in this life
Look at those around you and consider the priorities of their day
Take some time to rest; to weigh the options; to shift your focus
Stop and consider what is really important along your busy way
We all have just a little while upon this earth; a short time
Do what you will but make good use of what you’re given
Know that one day your life will be judged on its merits
When time is done and you reach your final home in Heaven
