Caught Up

I think that sometimes in life,
We just get so caught up.

We lose sight of things that matter,
Don’t enjoy the smaller stuff.

~

When was the last time,
You said “I love you”?

What if those you care for,
Are gone before you do?

~

Do you ever just enjoy,
The fact that you’re alive today?

When so many lose their chance,
To see their fifth birthday.

~

When you wake up in the morning,
And your feet first touch the floor..

Do you think of those in wheelchairs,
Who can’t do that anymore?

~

When you hear a babies cry,
Do you wish it would go away?

Some people would give anything,
To enjoy sound, for just one day.

~

When the sun glares in your eyes,
Do you complain about the light?

Or do you stop and wonder,
What life would be like without sight?

~

Do you savour every bite,
When you sit down to eat a meal?

While so many go on hungry,
Can you imagine how it feels?

~

When someone makes you feel good,
Do you let them know they do?

It is really just so simple,
To say the words " thank you".

~

As your lips meet someone elses,
Does the world around you freeze?

Or is it just a kiss to you?
Someone more deserving would be pleased.

~

Fifty years down the road,
When you look back on life..

Do you think that you’ll be satisfied,
Or wish you’d done things right?

~

The glass is always half full,
Appreciate what you’ve got.

See those you love for what they are,
And not for what they’re not.

~

Be proud of who you are,
Dont let the bad outweigh the good.

Remember, there’s always someone out there,
Who would trade places if they could…
