Remember to breathe or you will fall down
Remember to cry or they'll think you a clown.
Remember to love, for love conquers all.
Remember each winter is preceeded by fall.

Forget to do dishes for just one day.
Forget to remember the bills you must pay.
Forget to step softly when children sleep.
Forget to return all you don't need to keep.

Try to remember what you often let go,
the feel of the breeze when the spring is in flow.
Try to forget what needs so to be done;
for a momment remember what it's like to be young.



 Grant that I may not judge my niegbor until I have walked a mile in his moccasians

Native American prayer

Thank you for posting Christy. I liked the contrasts.  I REALLY liked the way you closed:

...for a momment remember what it's like to be young.

I can not agree more!

Remember to breathe or you will fall down

Remember to love, for love conquers all.
Remember each winter is preceeded by fall.

thank you for this...it was just what i needed this morning...this poem is sweet with wisdom...and YOU  
very nice,take care jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...
