Kindness unmentioned upon

Posted by markdohle , 24 November 2006 · 42 views

What we take for granted is often of greatest value,
Foolishly thought to be eternal
When actually to be torn away suddenly,
Leaving a void of regret
Cold and dark filled with memories,
Remembrance of a smile,
The gentle touch,
Kindness unmentioned upon,
Now understood and mourned,
Never again to be experienced
From the one taken for granted.
It is so easy to forget we are temporal,
Impermanent,
Our lives like morning mist soon to be gone.
This forgetfulness comes at a great price,
Paid in leisure, slowly, with regret,
Often relived over and over again
The lesson often forgotten numbed by times passage.
