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.....
