Sunset at Morro Bay, CaliforniaIf You Knew

how many colors the sky can become,
how many birds wait to dazzle you in flight,
how many deer run the lonely hills behind you,
how many trails are left to explore,
how many songs remain to be sung,
how many children walk this earth afraid,
how many days you have left to live,
would you live differently?
