A Little Reminder from 2007...

Monday, April 14, 2014

I was just clearing out some old files and came across this (yes, I kept it!) emoticon

The Watch

Midnight has been,
And has moved on,
And I am here.
Mortality stares at me
And still I am here.
Dawn comes
When I do not watch for it,
And I must be ready
If I am to catch the light…
The perfect picture happens
With every breath I take.
What a precious gift
I have been given—
A heart that can see
Is better than eyes.
It is not enough to just watch.
I need to be…
I need to live life
In the moment.
