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
Who're dearest to our hearts,
And allow the little foolish things
To tear our lives apart.
We let the unimportant things
Clutter up our minds,
And then it's often far too late
To see what made us blind.
So be sure that you let people know
How much they mean to you,
Take time to say those special 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!
