The fragrant splendor of the bloom fades fast Its beauty lost to some forever when They blindly, to their detriment, rush past; A chance like this may never come again. Enjoy the simple pleasures that abound; Take time to listen as a robin sings; Around you priceless treasures can be found Available to paupers and to kings. Abundant are rare opportunities Presented to us all with each new dawn; Wise are the ones who realize and seize Them long before the golden day is gone.
Be mindful as you go along your way To make the most of every single day.
Thank you Elizabeth, Butterflies, Mike, Marge, Milette and Janet Marie for reading and for your lovely comments! It has been quite some time since I have written anything. It feels great when the thoughts start flowing again!
"A chance like this may never happen again." I know this is true...about six months ago I came to the realization that I had missed a wonderful opportunity...and the chance is gone...I'm still looking for new ones and hopefully I will do better next time. James
Sooo true. I am another who has missed an opportunity or two in my life. I am now in the middle of trying to capture one I that I let pass 26 years ago and now have a rare chance of "The 2nd chance". This touched home really hard. Thank you.
