TAKE TIME

Take time to take.....the small gifts so hesitatingly offered by a friend.  The proud  handmade present from a child.
Take time to listen....to the old man's too oft-told tale.  To a husband's words of love.
Take time to share...a moment with a lonely soul  (for lonliness shared becomes love)....a sorrow with a  
     bereaved friend.
Take time to touch.....another human (which means "I care for you...I trust you.")....another life (for that is
     what life is all about.
Take time for each other....for nothing else is that important.
Take time to live....to dance for fun...to sing for joy......to paint or sew or create a beautiful gift.
Take time to watch....the snow swirling outside the window pane...the flames dancing in the fireplace.
Take time for goodness.....for faltering, fumbling world is after all....mostly good!

A lovely poem, Clara. It is indeed a worthy thing to remember that there is a lot of goodness in this old world.
