I never really paid much attention to these things until I was told that I have cancer. Now I stop and think.

STOP TO THINK

Did you ever stop to think

What it would be like,

Without the birds that sing?

Without the golden sun,

That surrounds everything?

Did you ever stop to think

What it would be like,

Without the trees so tall?

Without the falling leaves,

That always comes with Fall?

Did you ever stop to think

What it would be like,

Without the streams and lakes?

Without that babbling brook,

And the winding path it takes?

Did you ever stop to think

What it would be like,

Without the clouds so white?

Without all those dark ones,

That turn the day into night?

Did you ever stop to think

What it would be like,

Without the wind that blows?

Without the cold and chill,

Every time it snows?

Did you ever stop and think

What it would be like,

Without flowers in the spring?

Without the wonderful smell,

That the new blossoms bring?

Did you ever stop to think

What it would be like,

Without thunder and the rain?

Without vast open fields,

Of ripe, golden grain?

Did you ever stop to think

What it would be like,

Without a valley or a hill?

Without snow capped mountains,

That tons of rocks can build?

Did you ever stop to think

What it would be like,

If all this was made by man?

He could never do it,

Only Mother Nature can.

Did you ever stop to think

What it would be like,

If your life was gone in a wink?

No, I'll bet you haven't

So you'd

Better

Stop

And

Think.
