Once in a While

Just so
I stop
In the middle of a hectic day
And breathe

Once in a while
Just so
I look up
And look around
And see

Once in a while
Just so
I bend down
And smell
The roses

Once in a while
Just so
I hold still
For a moment and listen
To you, or her, or him

Once in a while
Just so
I let go
Of anger, of fear,
Of worry

Once in a while
Just so
I live
