Before Today Is Gone


Hold today lightly

and don't let it fall away

unnoticed or unwanted.


These plans and commitments coming due, these thoughts and regrets and dreams that have already started piling up... 

Note them as you would the tiny hand of a child that is extended towards you, and reach out to offer comfort.  Be with them.  Look deeply into their eyes until it is time to let go.  

And then let go.


Because yes, this too shall pass.

Why rush it along?
