Take A Second
As the world buzzes on by,
And things continue to go awry.
Look the other way,
And you'll be met with so many reasons to stay.
Lockdown is enough to make anyone frown,
So it's time to put on your dressing gown.
Take a second,
And always remember to check in.
As you wander in the frosty autumnal wind,
Stop for a moment, to take the sound of the leaves crunching in.
Do not be blind,
To all the charm you can still find.
Take a second, Take a minute,
Take an hour,
Take a day.
This is not the start of the end,
But instead the start of an unexpected chapter.
