Seconds

Live for the moment

Each second of time

Glimpse simple beauty

In the structure of rhyme

Touch a lone snowflake

On the tip of your tongue

Or remember the words

Of a song you once sung

Cherish the thought

Of gentle laughter

Remember a kiss

Of love ever after

Look at the world

Beyond your own time

This world filled with wonder

A beauty sublime

Yet live for the moment

Whatever it be

Revel in your time

For what you can see

Cherish each word

That you choose to speak

Make seconds and hours

Each day of the week

Worthy of living

And make others care

For this is your life

That we all need to share
