This is my favorite poem ever, and I would like to share it with you.

See the world for what it is;
An atom in a mass.
Realize that life will go;
Believe, and let it pass.
For to worry about things
that are yet to come
Destroys all memory.
Just let each day be happy,
And let each day be free....
I ask you, dream of what you've got,
Not what can  never be.
No one knows what's yet to come;
Wait awhile, you'll see.

Sheri, this poem is so beautiful. I think times like this is a time for poems and romance... If we don't keep on smiling and making our own happiness we are doomed! Thanks for this post. I love it.

Sheri, we both seem to be on the same wave length this week, tea and cameras! Your ocean pictures came out great with your new camera, it is fun to play with a new tool. I wish we could have a cup of tea together, love the poem, Laura


A cup of tea always makes me smile inside and out. LOVE the poem.

Oh Sheri, THAT IS BEAUTIFUL! And any poem with friendship as the theme is always a favorite with me. Poetry is human speaking to human, to see that we are not alone as opposed to "sacred" writings.....and thank you so much for coming to visit me. I know you will enjoy your little box. Bless you you sweet friend. Anita

That is a great poem! Thanks for visiting Sall's Country Life and the lovely compliments! You are all doing a fabulous job on Red Rose Alley and you now have another follower. Sheri, I too have been wanting a new camera. The pictures are so vivid that you took, I'd be interested in what kind you got? I'll be visiting often, as it looks like we all have a lot in common (including a love for Bob Marley:)
Have a great day!
