Living Every Moment

Baby & elderly man

When I was young

All the elderly people in my life

Would always advise me

To “live every moment.”

But I was young,

So of course I didn’t listen.

Didn’t pay attention

To the value of every moment;

Because I didn’t understand

Until I had my own children.

It was then that I realized

What they meant.

Those moments,

They arrive without warning

Then disappear with the wind.

So enjoy them.

Don’t let life’s breezes

Whisk them away

Before you take it all in.

Because there,

In each one of those moments

Lies the secret

To happiness.
