This was sent to me by someone who said I was a ‘Keeper’. I just thought it has a message for all and so am posting it here.
It is beautifully written and has a strong message – You ought to tell the people in your life how special they are and how much they mean to You before it is too late. We are here today, gone tomorrow. Nobody knows what lies in store the next moment. So while you are around ; Live and Live Happy. Cherish every moment :). Think about it!
To all the Keepers in my Life :
One day someone special will be gone.
And on that clear, cold morning,
In the warmth of your bedroom,
You might be struck with
The pain of learning that sometimes
There isn’t any more.
No more hugs,
No more lucky moments to celebrate together,
No more phone calls just to chat,
No more “just one minute.”
Sometimes, what we care about the most goes away.
Never to return before we can say good-bye,
Say “I Love You.”
So while we have it . . it’s best we love it . .
And care for it and fix it when it’s broken .
And take good care of it when it’s sick.
This is true for marriage …. And friendships …
And children with bad report cards;
And dogs with bad hips;
And aging parents and grandparents.
We keep them because they are worth it,
Because we cherish them!
Some things we keep —
Like a best friend who moved away
Or a classmate we grew up with.
There are just some things that
Make us happy, No matter what.
Life is important,
And so are the people we know.
And so, Keep them close!
