Take a little time in your day
To walk and meander along the way,
Having no destination in mind;
The beauty is in the walking you will find.
Take the fast pace out of living.
Forget past hurts and be forgiving
And slow down for a while.
Think of the good and give a smile.
Conceive a great thought,
Stop and check out a spot,
The one of beauty and expanse,
And imagine greatness in advance,
Regain the mystery,
Let go of the history,
Walk with your lover,
Begin to rediscover.
Forget where you’re going,
See colorful leaves blowing,
Breathe in the cool autumn air,
And step ahead without a care.
