Capture a moment of normal
Don’t forget what’s important to see
Those ones very dear that surround you
The ones in your own family

With a world that is in so much turmoil
Easy to forget to believe
That there’s still a few moments of normal
Still a few moments to breathe

So grab that grandbaby and hold her
Bounce that toddler around on your knee
Call a truce with your sister
And treasure your own family

Time is a gift swiftly fleeing
So quickly it runs away
So capture a moment of normal
And by all means, ENJOY THE DAY!!!

A.D.H.D. Society – Poetry

December 2, 2016

Why is it hard to simply sit still
To take a little time to rest?
We are driven by what?
That mystery force
That says we must do our best

Is that all it is?
This life I mean
How much can we produce?
The days slip away
And then they are gone
Did we really get what life is worth?

A little girls smile
A tear for awhile
Making a mud pie in the dirt
Did we miss all those things
And not realize
Their value and what they were worth

Get militant I say
Harness the day
Don’t let society rule your world
Cause when it’s all done
And the race is won
Spent wisely I hope you will say

Capture A Moment Of Normal

September 18, 2013

Capture a moment of normal
Don’t forget what’s important to see
Those ones very dear that surround you
The ones in your own family

With a world that is in so much turmoil
Easy to forget to believe
That there’s still a few moments of normal
Still a few moments to breathe

So grab that grandbaby and hold her
Bounce that toddler around on your knee
Call a truce with your sister
And treasure your own family

Time is a gift swiftly fleeing
So quickly it runs away
So capture a moment of normal
And by all means, ENJOY THE DAY!!!

Capture A Moment Of Normal

January 9, 2009

Capture a moment of normal

 

 

Don’t forget what’s important to see

Those ones very dear that surround you

The ones in your own family

 

With a world that is in so much turmoil

Easy to forget to believe

That there’s still a few moments of normal

Still a few moments to breathe

 

So grab that Grandbaby and hold her

Bounce that toddler around on your knee

Call a truce with your sister

And treasure your own family

 

Time is a gift swiftly fleeing

So quickly it runs away

So capture a moment of normal

And by all means,  ENJOY THE DAY!!!
