Before It Is Too Late

I found this poem. It is a powerful reminder to tell our love ones how much we love them.

Before It Is Too Late

If you have a tender message,
Or a loving word to say,
Do not wait till you forget it,
But whisper it today;
The tender word unspoken,
The letter never sent,
The long forgotten messages,
The wealth of love unspent–
For these some hearts are breaking,
For these some loved ones wait;
So show them that you care for them
Before it is too late.

    what a perfect poem. I have been reading and reading through your blog and, although our situations are different I truly recognize the rawness of your grief. I lost my daughter four years ago and I remember that first year of pain like it was yesterday. It will always be difficult but not like those early days. I will keep you in my thoughts, wishing you strength and moments of peace.

    Beautiful, but so many people don’t realize how short life is….really kind of sad.
