About the Poem

Like many, I have lost many significant people in my life. There have been times sitting at the bedside of someone I love who is dying that I had trouble saying how I feel. I so regret this now. I recently lost my maternal grandmother and was able to tell her I loved her before she passed. I then wrote this.

Tomorrow May Become Never

Say your "I love you's" today
Tomorrow it might be too late
Here and now is forever
Regrets my friend, are too hard to shake

Tomorrow may become never
Who knows when they could be gone
I've done this one time too many
Although I knew it was wrong

So "I love you" mother and father
"I love you" my brother alike
"I love you" my husband and daughter
And all who have influenced my life

I will always speak from the heart
I will speak every word as our last
I shall have no further regrets
When someone I love has passed

I wish everyone could read this and take it to heart. You're good, keep up the good work
What you write is so true. It's so easy to take our loved ones so much for granted and never let them know we appreciate them.
I liked your poem, Andrea. I too have lost someone dear to me in the past, and you conveyed some true emotion. Thanks
