Below is a beautiful poem that I just had to share, written by a Singaporean poet, Ann Lee Tzu Pheng. Ponder for a moment on her words – this is a poem so powerfully written on human friendship and loving one another.
Our lives are often so busy but the hidden secret this poet suggests- comes in less doing and more being by… sipping tea nice and slow! Life is short and friendships are precious.
Sip Your Tea, Nice and Slow
No one Ever knows when it’s Time to Go, There’ll be no Time to enjoy the Glow, So sip your Tea Nice and Slow.
Life is too Short but feels pretty Long, There’s too Much to do, so much going Wrong, And Most of the Time You Struggle to be Strong, Before it’s too Late and it’s time to Go, Sip your Tea Nice and Slow.
Some Friends stay, others Go away, Loved ones are Cherished, but not all will Stay, Kids will Grow up and Fly away, There’s really no Saying how Things will Go, So sip your Tea Nice and Slow.
In the End it’s really all about Understanding Love, For this World and in the Stars above, Appreciate and Value who truly Cares, Smile and Breathe and let your Worries go, So, Just Sip your Tea Nice and Slow
