A Little Slower

Drive a little slower,
Take a look around,
Remember the houses,
The yellow stripes of time.

Walk a little slower,
Breathe in the fresh air,
Remember the look in strangers' eyes.
The glimpse into another's life.

Eat a little slower,
Take a moment to taste each taste,
Remember the server's name,
The complex simplicity of food.

Talk a littler slower,
Think about each word being said,
Remember each reply,
The interactions that form the day.

Move a little slower,
Pay attention to each muscle,
Remember how it feels,
The connect to the world.

Breathe a little slower,
Think about each breath,
Remember the heart beating in your chest,
The key to everything else.

Love a little slower,
Show your love and don't just say it,
Remember to put love above money,
The fuel to our success.

Laugh a little slower,
Really feel the emotion,
Remember to laugh often,
The relief from stress.

Dance a little slower,
Hold onto each word and note of music,
Remember the rhythm and beat,
The movements of life.

Live a little slower,
Take time to make your life what you want,
Remember that you only have one chance,
The choice to sit back or to live to the fullest.

Exist a little slower and you will know what happiness is.
