A time of arrival

A month to consider why you’re blessed

Embracing every single precious moment

As one more amazing than all of the rest


A time to consider

Why you may have come here

Learning each and every instant

The facets that make this life so dear


A time of meditation

Where one can go deep inside

Look at all of the deeds you’ve done

And did them with love and pride


A time of divine thoughtfulness

Where we remember each of our friends

Showing them through our actions

Just how far we are willing to bend


A time to reflect

Preferably upon the best

Letting those years of struggle and hardship

Take a long-needed rest


A time to push aside

All of the problems of the world

Take on those simple actions

Of just being a little boy or girl


A time to dance and dine

And devour those things you love so much

Do whatever it may take

To laugh and lovingly adjust


A time to give to others

Even though it may be as simple as a kiss

Or you may sweetly whisper in their ear

That you’re glad that they exist…
