Most of All

MOST OF ALL

I have your picture hanging on the wall, there comes a time when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
On cloudy days and rain starts to fall, that’s when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
When the wind blows through the trees, birds and bees bow there heads in sympathy.
That’s when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t stop, and look at your picture, and gaze into those big brown eyes.
That’s when I miss you – MOST OF ALL.
On holidays when the sun refused to shine, that’s when I really miss you – MOST OF ALL.

Take Time

TAKE TIME

We Must take time, for the small things in life:
Like stars shining on a windless night, clouds passing by in early daybreak.
Sun beams bouncing off of forest trees, leaves getting ready for autumn breeze.
Children looking up at hot air balloons, man is talking about going back to the Moon!
We must take time to smell the flowers as they bloom
And look up at snowcap mountains as they try to touch the sky,
And imagine watching baby eagles trying to fly.
So, we must take time, before life passes us by –
This all can happen – In the blink of an eye.
