          (Actress enters, writing)
It might seem like something small

 and for others it's not something important at all 

But today I read the paper all the way through 

it may not seem like much to you

But it's a very rare and unusual day

When I actually get to have my way

And do something I want to do

Like having enough time for my breakfast too

How does it feel the sensation oh shucks

I have to say like a million bucks

To take a walk and not be in a rush
 and have time to figure out what rhymes with hush

To sit in the sun to be nice and warm
 for a moment to be out of the storm

of all the things I have to do

 no I really think that you

Have no idea what this means to me

But maybe just maybe one day you'll see

when you are busy morn to night

When every day you have to fight 

for just a few minutes to yourself for your soul

I hope that one day you too..... will reach that goal

       (She turns to leave, stops, looks back)

I wrote this poem last Sunday morn

As I penned this little yarn

The phone was my dad

And.....he'd fallen down bad

So I was happy, yes I was glad....

For the few moments of quiet I had had

And raced to help him, thank God he's ok now

But I'm so tired, can't recall how

To end a poem with some semblance of rhyme.....

I guess I'll have to wait...until I have a little more time

        (Exits, still editing - because Dad is better, thank God, and I have a minute to write this.  Note to all - please don't fall!)
