I’m Taking It All In

I'm taking it all in right now poem 2012I’m Taking It All In

I’m taking it all in now
savoring each precious moment
that I have with you.
I’m breathing the air you breathe,
I’m touching your skin,
I’m looking at your face,
trying to memorize your smile.

I’m taking it all in now
for I shall never pass this way again,
I’m hearing your voice,
I’m hearing your laughter,
I’m seeing you,
I’m smelling you,
I’m walking side by side with you,
down the streets we’ve always loved to walk.

I’m taking it all in now
and I can’t waste a precious moment.
Each second counts, each minute is a gift,
no moment shall pass by, without me seizing it!
Living it! Taking it!
Filling it with all the love
I could possibly give away!

I’m taking it all in now,
I’m filling my soul with things that last,
etched upon my heart forever,
embedded always in my mind,
in my soul, in my very spirit!
I take what God has given,
eternal treasures that won’t ever slip away.

I’m taking it all in now,
I’m drinking it, receiving it,
basking in it with arms opened wide!
I’m here
You are here
This time is sacred,
and I’m taking it all in right now.

    This is beautiful, Joyce. If only we can be so present to every one we meet – what a different place the world would be ?
