Once we connected, I was relieved to know she and her family were safe. I learned that we take for granted the time we have with each other. We should cherish the hours and days and remember to let the ones we know that we love them.
I leave you with this poem from my collection, Love the Vicious Cycle.
We sometimes forget to express love
For those close to us
We sometimes take for granted that
They will always be there
We sometimes neglect to see that
Their absence would leave empty hours
We sometimes miss the fact that without
And open arms
There would be a vacant spot in our hearts
