Take Time

From grand gestures and thoughtfulness
Relationships taper over time
Love taken for granted
Ever present partners no longer extra special
For we don’t long for what is always there
Don’t see what is in front of us
Too busy making a living and providing
To look for the spark that is presumed
Stop the waning and the fading
Take a breath,
Take their hand,
Take notice,
Take time,
To smile,
To say I love you,
To be together as the people you are today
