Life – Dust

Posted by cotojo on July 2, 2007

I Love You 

Dust if you must.
But wouldn’t it be better to paint a picture,
or write a letter, bake a cake, or plant a seed.

Ponder the difference between want and need.

Dust if you must.
But there is not much time,
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb!

Music to hear, and books to read,
friends to cherish and life to lead.

Dust if you must.
But the world’s out there with the sun in your eyes,
the wind in your hair, a flutter of snow, a shower of rain.

This day will not come round again.

Dust if you must.
But bear in mind, old age will come
and it’s not kind.

And when you go, and go you must,
you, yourself, will make more dust.

Remember, a house becomes a home
when you can write “I love you” on the furniture.

    Thanks Lisa.
    Sometimes it is just too easy to be doing other things that we do miss out on a great deal that is going on without even realizing it.
    Take care my friend :o)

    I missed this one last night. Nice poem, it is true that we sometimes we get obsessive about cleaning the clutter in our life that we miss life itself. =) Have a good evening Colin.
