Don't Run Too Fast - By Louise Minch

I ran along the beach 

And soon came to the end 

Where the giant rocky cliffs 

Extend into the water's edge 

And divide the sand. 

I slowed to walk back 

To where I had come from 

And saw all the beauty 

I had missed as I ran by 

The first time. 

Life has divisions too 

But we can't retrace our steps 

To capture the treasures passed 

In our rush toward tomorrow.
