Life is truly too short
It fades day by day
Slipping gradually away
Right through our hands
Never forget to say you care
Please do not go without
Saying a prayer
Never go without being kind
Do not leave a day behind
Without saying I Love You
We often spend much time
Forgetting what matters
Taking much for granted
All the little things that do
We often forget
We all make mistakes
Stumble and fall
Take someones hand
Help each other walk again
For our chance will someday end

I try to never part with a loved one without telling them that I Love them. Thank-You for an enjoyable read.

Much wisdom in your words, you never know when the chance will be gone! You've said it well!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

'For our chance will someday end'

A very powerful poem, Bridgette!  Such words of wisdom! Everyone should take these words to heart!!

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Hi Bridgette,

Ahhh... just what I needed.  Just got home from a very busy 12+ hour workday and zooming out of here to get to my girlfriends.  Thanks for a very needed read.

Hey Rus after your 12+ hour day I am glad this brightened your day!!  Thank You both!!

Words of wisdom you did find
Thinking through this I unwinde
Written well I must say
But before I'm on my way
Won't forget to say
You have a heart and have a great great day


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Something we can never hear enough of! Those are words to live by!

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.
