Sunrise – Sunset

Sunrise – Sunset

Today our sun will rise and today our sun will set.
Now, how I use these hours that separate the two, you can bet
Will not be my top notch performance. Of this I am sure!
‘Cause, by nature, I’m so slow, and for this I’ve found no cure.

But no matter if my “to do” list just gets shuffled every day
I always seem to find the time to communicate with God and pray,
To appreciate nature, home, pets and all these things, just a smatter
Because I somehow know that “soul things” are all that truly matter.
