Too often we don’t realize

What we have until it is gone

Too often we wait too late to say

“I am sorry – I was wrong.


Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones

We hold dearest to our hearts;

And we allow foolish things

To tear our lives apart.


Far too many times we let 

Unimportant things into our minds;

And then it’s usually too late

To see what made us blind.


So be sure that you let people know

How much they mean to you

Take the time to say the words

Before your time is through.


Be sure that you appreciate

Everything you’ve got;

And be thankful for the little things

In life that meant a lot.

  1. These words so true
    they ring out too
    like a car horn they warn you
    life is so precious so aree family
    one moment they here
    next they disapear
    for what ever reason
    our sorrows will grow
    and they have passed
    and will never know
    how much we feel sorry each days
    for words we said which hurt that day
    but alass its to late to
    go back on them
    as they have gone too
