JUST ONE MORE THING

by Sara Groves

 

There's always just one more thing .

There's always another task .

There's always I just have one more small favor to ask .

And everything is urgent and everything is now .

 

I wonder what would really happen if I stopped somehow . .

I'll be there in a minute . Just a few places to go .

You wake up a few years later and your kids are grown .

 

And everything is important .
But everything is
not .

At the end of your life your relationships are all you're got . .

 

And love to me is when you put down that one more thing and say,"I've got something better to do."

 

And love to me is when you walk out on that one more thing and say .

              Nothing will come between me and you .

Not even one more thing . .

 

There will never be an end to .

The request upon your time . It's your place to stand up and tell the world .

You've got to rest awhile .

 

And everything is important . But everything is not .

At the end of your life your relationships are all you've got . .

 

And love to me is when you put down that one more thing and say .

I've got something better to do . 

And love to me is when you walk out on that one more thing and say
Nothing will come between me and you . Not even one more thing
. .
