Don’t waste it
not one second
not one blessed drop of time.
Wishing away days others’ would cry for.
Hold your child
and if childless,
Breathe deeply because you can
and hold in your heart (without morbidity)
those who no longer can… and REJOICE.
Your chapter is not yet closed.
Time is given in this moment
for movement forward.
SMILE, and if that is not possible, cry
but for God’s sake don’t just sit there.
waiting for a tomorrow that may not come
A love who may never hold you
A dream you might never make it to bed to have.
What you have is NOW
