I wonder if we could get back the time we spend finding out what time it is, how many more days we would enjoy in our lives.

This poem made me take a deep breath and calm down a little. (so much to do, gotta get it done, busy busy busy) Ahh....

Great poem, Karen. "looking at the clock, I start over" - these words give me hope. =)
