DON'T FORGET TO SAY I LOVE YOU:

DON'T FORGET TO SAY "I LOVE YOU"
from the book Negative V. Positive
I look up at the stars at night
Twinkling in the sky.
Each one represent our loved ones
Who have now passed by.

They came into our life
Like a breath of fresh air.
A smiling face and love
A love beyond compare.

That love sometimes we so
Much took for granted.
So when their time to pass on
We feel so demented.

Next time you see your loved one,
Give them a hug and a kiss.
For if they are not here,
How sorely they'll be missed.

Take the time to say "I Love You",
As oftenas you can.
Because you know not
Of God's Eternal Plan.

Do these simple things
Each and every day.
And you will have much more
Than wealth as you travel along life's way/.

  3. Most thoughtful, Yvonne, It seems that people can feel "silly" expressing their love for those so near and dear. And yet, we must let them know or live with a sense of regret.

    Thank you, Yvonne.
