Is life too short to stop and smell
Partake of the velvet blue rose?
With petals soft, that serve to quell
What pondering life does suppose

Too short still, to nurture a care?
Within one – given – to imbue
Patiently taking the time to share
Warm a heart in friendship true

Halt the sands of time in mind
Breathe in the joy of being free
Close the eyes – make them blind
For inside a shell ~ to clearly see

Let not life be too short a’dance
Allow your heart, if once enthralled
To make that step, to take that chance
Have ‘cross your walls, Love’s lines scrawled



 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.

Breathe in the joy of being free

EXACTLY! What to do other than try? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But you'll never know until that step is taken!
