take time to smell the roses
sweet spring, enjoy life’s offer
relish the air in the azure

be glad we have all the choices
let us not take things for granted
let’s appreciated them as fitted

scent of a rose gives me a buzz
don’t have to be in a hurry
enjoying life that is the key

think of the love and its auras
and what goes around, comes around
kids playing in merry-go-round

take time to smell the roses
for one day we won’t be able
just enjoy it and be grateful*
