This poem is dedicated to my wonderful friend, Leslie Shen, who taught me how to take time out to “smell the roses.”

Simply Time for Me


Simply time for me,

Simply time to be.


Time to take a walk and deeply breathe,

Time to calm the mind and hear the rustling leaves,

Time to slow the heart,

Say “bye bye” harried day.


Simply time for me,

Simply time to be.


Time for curious eyes to feast on nature’s gems,

Like the sun’s gentle rays kissing the rippling lake.

Hark, the water glistens and glows, and it says to me,

“You are always welcome here!”


Simply time for me,

Simply time to be.


Time to lift the face toward the heavenly skies,

Time to stretch the arms upwards, in sweet surrender and in trust.

Time to pause, to open the heart,

to let the evening’s rays bathe my grateful being,

From head to toe, from inside and out…

Sweet joy it is, to delight in simple pleasures, in nature, in life.


It is simply time, simply time to heed,

That happiness is to simply be…

Right here, right now.
