Close your eyes and dream
Cast your fears aside
Don’t waste the day….be happy
No reason you should cry.

Let the magic of this moment
Carry you away
To a land above the shadows
Where the clouds are white, not gray.

Smell the flowers, their sweet fragrance
Fill your mind with pleasantries
Thoughts of all your loved ones
Enjoy the memories.

Time wasted …can’t be counted
When you look back over time
Don’t let it get inside your head
Take heed and watch the signs.

The could’a , should’a, woulda ’s
Are mere mishaps, let them go
Don’ t pine, don’t let them linger
Cast your eyes on the rainbow.

Have faith and hope for tomorrow
Try to find a better way
Cast aside all of your heartache
Savior each and everyday.

    1. Thank you! It was inspired by a friend of mine who has some difficulty with depression. We sometimes have to stop and appreciate the value of each day. Not always so easy to do. So glad you liked my poem and the picture, too! Hope you have a lovely day! 💙
