When times are good

When we feel good

When we feel healthy

We race along at speed

Making plans

Making grand designs

And taking life for granted

Surrounding ourselves

With material things

And other stuff with little meaning

But what when things go off the rails

When the wind is taken

From our sails?

Then we face the true reality of life

The time and opportunity we had wasted

Distracted by unimportant things

That we are lead to believe are essential

Until the time comes when we realise

That it’s the things you can’t by that are more precious

The time spent appreciating life and love

With people that truly matter

That are around always and whatever

And whenever times turn good or bad.
