Its come to my attention, that many things are getting lost.
Between the spouse, children, relatives, friends and even own boss.
I've studied this in detail, and, of course to no surprise.
The answer is as clear as the air up in the sky.

It's not that don't care, or feel they lack of great importance.
It's just we are too busy, too tired, too selfish or out of sorts.
It's not that we are stupid, unlearned or a silly bunch of fools.
That couldn't be! Its impossible! We've all attended schools!

I can tell by now you falling off.
This poem has caused your eyes to glisten.
So the next time someone speaks to you.
Try not just to hear...Listen.

You might be surprised to learn, we all have something good to say.
Could be as unimportant as a "good morning", "Hi", or the time of day.
Could be about the weather, the kids, the job, or something that we're
wishing.
Nevertheless you'll miss the message, if you don't learn how to listen
