Slow Down

 

 

Slow Down

Slow down

from the busyness, from the here and there,

relax on the front porch in grandma’s rocking chair.

Slow down

to hear the robin sing its morning song,

breathe the morning air, perhaps you’ll sing along.

Slow down

to share some kind words with a passerby.

Enjoy

the beauty of the clouds and the stars in the sky.

Slow down

share a meal with your family and friends.

Take time

for those you love.

Take time

to laugh again.

Slow down

don’t get mad when the stop light turns red,

think of all the good things, count your blessings instead.

Slow down

from chasing dreams, deadlines and goals.

Love

the simple moments,

for they are life you know.
