Don’t forget to get away every once in awhile, To lose yourself in a book Or in the woods behind your home Ride your bike into the sunset, Sit on your front steps and count the cars passing by, Lay on your roof and gaze up at the night sky, Drive along backroads with the windows rolled down Listening to nothing but the sound of rushing wind
I hope you take the time to be alone, To sort through the cluttered shelves of your heart
I hope you take the time to be silent, To close your eyes and just listen
I hope you take the time to be still, To quiet your mind and experience the beauty Of simply Being
In a world that tells us we should always be Connected, on the go, and doing something worth sharing, I hope you know it’s okay to Disconnect, slow down, and keep some memories Between you and the moment you shared it with.
