So often the most significant moments in our lives
Creep up on us as we inhale and exhale, unaware
Of the true love, joy, and hate surrounding
Our often inadequate and always imperfect human ways.
We close our eyes to the deeper meaning of the minutes
Which circumvent our wandering minds,
Our listless spirits, and our dissatisfied souls.
We overlook the practical beauty
Of the commonplace everyday
Until we look back upon our age
And see the depth of the gift of time to learn
From our undervalued mistakes.
There is grace in the daily seconds
Which we don’t realize
Should always still take our breath away
Despite the ever-changing ramble
Of our hopes, dreams, faith, and lives.
