Before You Know It

Regina Puckett


Much of this journey we walk alone

And much too soon our adventure is gone

So take a moment to pause along the way

And carefully listen to what others say

Stop and smell the flowers and look up at the sky

Stand by others whether they laugh or cry

Take someone’s hand and help, if there’s a need

Listen with both ears to a sigh or a plead

If you see someone else fall along the side

Do your best to help them – at least you tried

Smile as often as you can – even if it’s through tears

Because before you know it, these seconds turn into years
