THINKING OF YOU

Do you ever have regrets about
not telling someone how important
they are to you?
or were to you?
Maybe a friend?
or a special love?
Probably many people
can relate to this poem.


THINKING OF YOU

How long has it been
since I stepped off
the treadmill
long enough
to really say
how much
I think of you.

How often my
thoughts
turn to where
you are
and what
you are doing
and what
your thoughts
are
at this particular moment.

One would think
that when
something
means all to us
we would have
more time
to give.

But we tend so
to save the best
for last
and
so it goes.

Not enough time left
to do what
we really
want to do.

And that is
to share
your lightest mood
or your
deepest thoughts
to convey
somehow
that someone
really cares
and thinks
of you often.

  4. It would be so nice if we could all remember to say these words to the people we care about, to let them know we ARE thinking about them.
    Beautiful

  5. The lion's share of emotions are often not given to those nearest and dearest to us. We first fight back the intensity of self expression, hoping against time and that innate longing that the one we desire will read our minds and are bitterly disillusioned when the message is garbled up in the process of clarvoyance.

  10. "We tend to save the best for last.." This I agree.

    We tend to give more to strangers because they are interesting in passing. They are interesting, go away and we may or may not see them again.

    Those who are closest to us, the familar, "I love you" becomes a period. "Don't forget milk, I love you." Fish kiss and move on to the next thought.

    I am looking for the middle ground. To be able to say "I love you" everyday with absolute conviction and never being confused with a period.

    Yes, just to let someone
    know we are thinking about
    them can make a difference
    in their day.
