About the Poem

This poem is about all the things we never realize we have and we don't see how they change our lives until we lose them.


We love the smallest things
Yet we never notice they're there
We get attached to them
yet we don't see them until they fade away

Its not until we see them for the very last time
That our eyes get watery
That empty tears fall down

We live with the thought
That they'll always be there
We think we never have to say "I love you"
That we'll have time later to show them we care

Yet in a time so short they just slip away
And we're left with the feeling of loneliness
And the urge to yell "I miss you, come back!"

We never know what we have until we have lost it
Like the wise men say
So when you still have them
Tell them you love them
Show them you care

Don't wait till the next day
Because that next day might be the day-
the day they fade away.....

its a damn good poem keep up the good work angel
koooooool i like it its reality
I loved this poem, because what was said in the poem I have just realized from a previous relationship. I let someone go who I really cared about and never told him. Now I realized I want him back.
This is a great poem and i think that it gives alot of incougage meant to say i love you
I thoroughly enjoyed the poem because it made me realise that the person who claimed to love me one day and then the next said he didn't, doesn't know what he has lost and the poem I have decided to sent to him to try and make him realise what he has lost. You have such a way with words that I have never seen before.
