Too true, too often

~Author unknown

(One of my favourite poems...)

Too often we don't realize
what we have until it is gone
Too often we wait too late to say,
"I'm 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 that 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 mean a lot.

Growing old surrounded by those we love
is a privilege denied to many
Never leave behind regrets.
