Psalm 82:3


Take note of the stars

Notice how they twinkle and dance

Each of them is someone

Someone who’s been loved

Someone who’s been lost

They look down from heaven 

And wait to be joined


Take note of the sunset 

How it seems to call your name

Someone you’ve lost is missing you 

And knows you feel the same

They paint the sky bold and bright

To let you know love’s eternal 


Take note of the sirens 

Wailing down the street 

Take a moment to pray

For someone is in need


Take note

Take note of the simple things

Take note of what’s beyond what you can see

Because there’s more than your perspective 


When you widen your gaze

And take note of others’ views

You discover just how narrowly fixed your gaze was

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
--Joni Mitchell

It shows great depth and maturity. I'll raise a toast to that. You're a great poet.
