Every now and then harsh words are exchanged between you and a friend. Words so harsh and unforgivable the friendship seems impossible to mend. Every now and then we break promises to our kids with every intention of making it up to them but the truth is they won’t remember your intentions only the times you didn’t spend. Every now and then we push our partners buttons we get into arguments over nothing then go to bed and fall asleep too mad and stubborn to say “I Love You”. Every now and then we take Life for granted we don’t appreciate today because tomorrow is expected. Every now and then we forget Life has an end. Until we are unexpectedly reminded by the passing of a friend. Now wishing you could say “I’m Sorry” and help your friendship mend. By the passing of a child Now remembering all those broken promises and all the time you didn’t spend. By the passing of a spouse Now wanting to tell them you love them laying beside them in bed But now you’re crying yourself to asleep alone on the couch instead.
You can’t go back and say you’re sorry You can’t get back the time you didn’t spend You can’t tell them you love them because LIFE IS SHORT And NOW it’s too late...you should of did it THEN.
This came to me after suicide claimed two lives of loved ones around me, just this year. My daughters best friend who was only 17, and my sons best friends father who was only 40. Please check on the ones you love, a simple “how are you? Are you ok? Or anything I can do? “ will probably save someone’s life.
