Take Time – A Poem With So Much Meaning


Take time to think – It is the source of all power

Take time to read – It is the foundation of all wisdom

Take time to play-It is the source of perpetual youth

Take time to be quiet-It is the opportunity to seek God

Take time to be aware-It is the opportunity to help others

Take time to love and be loved-It is God’s greatest gift

Take time to laugh-It is the music of the soul

Take time to be friendly-It is the road to happiness

Take time to dream-It is what the future is made of

Take time to pray-It is the greatest power on earth

Take time to give-It is too short a day to be selfish

Take time to work-It is the price of success

Today, take time, or rather make time for what’s really important in your life. Remember to share a smile, give a hug, hold the door open for another person, be courteous when driving, call someone you haven’t talked to for awhile, write a letter to a loved one, and tell those close to you that you love them. Life is too short to go around living it with anger or hatred.

    So pleased to find this verse on your site My long-gone Dear Grandmother wrote this verse from memory into an autograph book I have since mislaid. I particularly like the sentiment ” Make time —- ” The world would certainly be a much better place if we made an effort to live by this advice Thank you

    I found this poem some forty-five plus years ago and wrote it out in calligraphy and framed it as a gift, which still hangs in my parents home (ages 82 AND 83) today. It’s my mother’s and one of my favorite poems. I found it in a book when I was in my early teens.
