Poem by Regina Riggs



Too often we don’t realize

what we have until it is gone;

Too often we wait too late to say

“I’m sorry – I was wrong”


Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones

we hold dearest to our hearts;

And we allow foolish things

to tear our lives apart


Far too many times we let

unimportant things into our minds;

And then it’s usually too late

to see what made us blind


So be sure that you let people know

how much they mean to you;

Take that time to say the words

before your time is through


Be sure that you appreciate

everything you’ve got

And be thankful for the little things

in life that mean a lot
