Everything We Love

Personally I find this slightly cheesy, but that’s ok. Also, this was supposed to be a song as well, but again I got lazy and just tweaked it to be a poem. šŸ™‚
Appreciate
The things
That are
Loved.

For those things
Can be taken
Gone
In an instant.

In a snap of fingers,
A puff of breath,
A tick of a clock,
A skip of a rock.

Keep the seconds
Of the life that we live
Counted.

Because everything we know,
Everything we have,
Everything we love,
Can go.

Take care of the things
That can be gone.

They can leave

In a snap of fingers,
A puff of breath,
In a tick of a clock,
The skip of a rock.

If we appreciate
Anything at all

If we appreciate
Things big and small

If we count
the seconds
Of
The
Life
We live
All the time,

We’ll know
That
Everything we love
Can
Go.
