Don’t Miss This Life

The greatest tragedy in life is not death
It is that we did not live fully
The greatest tragedy is not
That we are here
Marooned on either side by eternity
It is that we wasted our precious time
On things that didn’t matter
And forgot to smell the spring flowers
And stop to listen to the sweet birdsong
As it welcomes the dawn
We forgot to see a world of beauty
And got lost in things we thought we needed

Don’t miss this
Don’t get so caught up in the waves
That you forget to feel
The beautiful texture of the water.
