Appreciate Moments

Image

Complaint

Feigned objection

Woefully busy days

Filled with necessary tasks

Painfully soon they fade away

Lamentation

Sleepless night

Racing minds query

Thoughts loudly waking thinker

Shockingly and suddenly comes stillness

Imagining

Unscheduled day

Nothing needing doing

Just sitting without movement

Sadly those days are approaching

Seeker

Of silence

Place without people

Less meeting or discussion

Such shall come surprisingly soon

Regretting

While recalling

Those hurried times

That should be savored

Once gone they don’t return

Wishful

Such activities

The noisy mayhem

Would stumble upon me

With age however comes stillness

Knowing

Endings come

Permanent and final

New doors ever opening

While those closed beg consideration.

Determined

To appreciate

Whatever is now

Because once passed away

Memories made are what remains.
