Slowly, slowly said the Sloth

I looked around and everyone was hurried,
too busy to stop
to think
to talk
it was always later
when I get a chance

..and that was me, too
until I jumped off
the merry-go-round
and paused.

it was as though everyone else was fast forward
and I
at once in the moment, and enjoying it
kissing my daughter's toes
chatting to my son about his day
stroking my husband's arm
because I paused
to enjoy this life I have,
to appreciate the here and now.

because, as always, the future is uncertain,
but today is pretty great.
