As the seasons change and life shifts
There is not a lot of time
as I move about my day
So much to be done
But throughout my day, I take pause
And think of a little joy.
The future is hard to configure
Hope can be challenging
when so much is at stake
Will I do the ‘right’ thing?
Will I keep all the plates spinning?
What if I forget?
What if I screw up?
Think of magic moments created in the past
The ones that turned out right anyway
The scrumptious restaurant discovered when the other was full
The secret spot in the park hidden from view
An afternoon playing hooky in a museum
A three hour lunch when the world took a backseat
A stormy day at the beach, watching waves in the wind
Walking hand in hand with a loved one
Build on that foundation with little joys and small steps
A warm cup of coffee watching the sunrise
Picking a fig off a tree you planted
Talking with someone who listens all night
A project well done
Listening to a song that brings a smile
Know, with this resume you can aspire to more
Beaming proudly as your child receives their diploma
Dancing at their wedding
The sound of grandchildren’s laughter
A trip to the Maldives
there is opportunity
a little joy
along the way.
