Did You Stop To Smell The Rose?


Life seems to go by so quickly

some like it that way, I suppose

oftimes I think, what I have missed

for not stopping to smell the rose.


Momentarily, we see flowers of beauty

growing here, there, everywhere.

With the world, we keep on moving

sadly, some do not really care.


I not only speak of the flower

as I say stop-enjoy the smell.

Take time to listen, to those in need

fragrance, will surface as well.


God said "come with me to a quiet place

and together we will pray."

You will find peace, comfort, hope and love

to share along life's way.


So my friend, I'll ask a question

as this poem comes to close.

When you feel in life, you have missed so much

did you stop, to smell the rose?
