Stop, take a breath,
look around you,
take in the scene,
make time for you.
you have a lifetime,
when you can,
smile every day.
Stop, look about you,
don't be scared
to day dream.
Remember to live
while you're alive,
not the system.
Pause every time
you feel sad,
a warm breeze
and if this works
pass it on
and remember me.
