Stop And Smell The Roses
Do you ever stop and wonder About this world in which we live Each and every one of us Has the capacity to give To find a person's worth You must look deep inside Within the heart and soul Is where love will reside Look at those who project love And see the way they smile Sit within their radius And stay for just awhile Don't judge others quickly Show some dignity and grace You can't really know a person Until you look beyond their face Turn negatives into positives Step inside another's shoes Don't worry about the past For now it's yesterday's news Take each day more slowly For life is not a race Challenge yourself daily To bring a smile to someone's face Treat the elderly with respect And help out where you can Show love and affection Towards your fellow man Send love out into the world Give just a little of yourself For it is deep inside your heart Where you have the most wealth Don't take things for granted And soon you will realise When you stop and smell the roses It feels so good to be alive
Author's Notes:
"Look long and hard at people who live lovingly Notice how beautifully they age Notice how irrelevant their wealth or status is Notice how much other people want to be in their presence Notice how they smile"
