treasuring you

let me treasure you for a little while, for the road ahead is long – and I so often need your smile, to cheer me as I go on.

let me treasure you for a little while, let us talk of birds and flowers – or hidden houses in the trees, a pleasant way to pass the hours.

let me treasure you for a little while, there will be time for other things – for fame and fortune to be found, when you have gone on angel wings.

let me treasure you while the day is new, while the sun yet shines on high – while on the grass still lies the dew, which come the night will light the sky.

let me treasure you while you are here, sharing these moments with me – let me treasure you now just as you are, for I shall need the memory.

sincerely,        Grace Day

  1. Treasure … makes me wonder how much of the “awe” God breathed into each of us & all of His creation I miss by not truly treasuring or seeing the treasure before me. Thanks for the reminder … you most certainly are a treasure I greatly treasure!
