If you have someone - close to love -
They're sent from heaven, up above
Hold them close - or they will go...
You will reap, what you do sow.

If you are distant - cold inside -
and in their arms, you don't confide
You'll start to pull away from them...
Isolation - - will set in.

You get so busy - in your day -
You push this person, far away
Forget to tell them that you care...
Forget to show them, you're still there.

It only takes - a little while -
To pull them close, & share a smile
To whisper something meaningful...
Tenderness - is valuable.

Kiss them softly - show you care -
Let them know, desire's there,
Underneath the hectic day
You still want them anyway......

Take a moment - please repair -
The distance in your silent stare,
Hold them close - or they will go
You will reap, what you do sow.

You are so right, it is a terrible thing when
we lose someone we love because we took them for granted!!!!! Well said, good

Ah, Femme, words to live by. I have found one miles away who I hold closer to my heart than any other I have ever held physically.
When I get the chance to hold her in person such emptiness will never echo from her lips again.

Sad yet true. A poem yet a beginning and without end, I hope that it speaks volumes of things past rather than things to come.
