Appreciation of people we have in our lives.

Where Do We Go Wrong?

What a precious GEM;

I came across,

Brought into my life

So unexpectedly, so unselfishly

Assisting me thought my absolute misery.

A heart of gold, not a harsh word to scold

Open arms to hold; helping me to cope,

Letting me know, I need to be brave

I needed to be able to show you,

That I can survive

All on my own

It'll be hard, knowing that I had to let you go

It would have been so much easier

"Holding on" to you, just for me

When you really needed to be

"Set-free"

Someone let her slip

Through their grip,

Tightly clutched,

To no avail

 An

"Hour glass"

Suddenly flipped,

Turned upside down,

The sand slowly trickling forth!

Until you realize there is nothing left

All the sand ... gone

It was only a matter of time

So often not appreciating what we have

Until it's too late, then we wonder why,

Where did we go wrong"?
