Slow down
What’s the hurry love?
Here, life is in each moment don’t you know?
Don’t throw them away
Such precious jewels
Such golden gems
Take it easy sweet one
Throw away your plans, your agenda, your deadlines.

And

Breathe….

Slow down little one
Recall the time in childhood
How slowly each day unwound itself around you
How much your little mind packed in each day
Through play and imagining…

Slow down sweet, precious one
And let yourself step fully into life’s sacred moments
Each one a gift
There’s no need to hurry anymore
Those ways are long gone
Let yourself die to them
And instead embrace the honour of
The gift inside life’s eternal thread.
