About the Poem

This is a poem written the day my grandmother died as a message to people to love and cherish every waking moment in their life and a warning not to wait too long to love, but to show people you love them before death takes them away.

Cherish

The times we had together will be cherished foever now.
The times we laughed, played and even fought will be cherished now.
These are precious moments never even thought of till after death.
So please heed my word people, cherish every day now before it's too late.
Give all your love to everyone and everthing as if it was the last time you could.
