Crayons of Life

By Melinda Taylor

Two pictures on the shelf
Just we two
Me and you
Taken when we were young
We're older now
But we're not done
Love doesn't come just when you're young
It can come anytime
And ours has just begun
We learned some things along the way
Like don't just work
Learn to play
Don't take anything for granted
Appreciate everything
Stay in one spot
Means staying the same
That would drive me insane
Branch out and squeeze life
For what it's worth
Don't just exist on this earth
Show life what you want it to be
Do that and you will see
It will comply
Most readily
Grab the brass ring
Give it a tug
Don't be shy
Fall in love
You know what I'm talkin' about
Don't just whisper
Give it a shout
Use every crayon in the box
Mix some colors
Give it a shot
Make new vista's with your crayons
Stagnant is not where you belong
And when the sun finally sets
And you look back On your accomplishments
You'll be very surprised to see
All the beautiful artistry
Maybe not a Rembrandt or Van Gogh
But a masterpiece to show
Listen my friends
To my words
Take them to heart
And you will concur
Life is for living
And living it well
Will you do it
Only time will tell
