Heart to Heart

This post was inspired by a piece I read called “I’m scared” written by Elsie over at Elsie LMC blog.  She rekindle in me some feelings I get whenever I think of a loved one leaving me before I could share with them all I have to say.

Family is sometimes all we have and those of us who are still fortunate to have people we love in our lives should never take them for granted.  This is to my family.

So many times I stop and think

We could be no more with just one blink

No more laughter, no more talks

No more browsing on our little walks

So as I prepare this heart to heart

Let’s remove all bitterness from our path 

Agreeing to put petty differences aside

Especially those entangled with our pride

Our love for each other we should never hide

So many times I stop and think

How much time was wasted between you and me?

Silence left to pass the time

Because of foolish pettiness

We’ve now reduced our time

So many times I stop and think

If you were to leave me now

My heart would surely sink

For without you in this world

I would feel so empty and cold

As the tears and grief would fill my soul

So I’ve made my decision and with careful precision

I will take the first step because I don’t want to leave this world with regret

Besides I never want you to forget,

I love now and forever

To my mother, father, sister, brother, sons and niece

Knowing each of you in this life

Has truly brought me so much peace

I know we’ve had our moments

But life is short so no more postponements

Live your life and cherish it

Remembering to show your love

While learning to receive it

So let’s put any differences aside

Removing all bitterness and pride

Loving and praying for each other everyday

Because when that day comes there’s only so much we can say

I love you all

Have a blessed day.

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your mom. Relationships especially with the ones we love can be extra challenging if we don’t try to mend what was broken. In the end I’ve learnt that being angry or holding onto the hurt doesn’t help me or the relationship. I had to choose to forgive, in order to heal and move forward. Even in your mother’s absence you can still do the same if you haven’t done so already. Thank you so much for reading, commenting and sharing. Sending a virtual hug your way. Make today a great one! 🙂

  2. Very true and insightful. I lost my mother recently. We never had a good relationship, but there were so many things left unsaid. Maybe talking to her would have changed things. Never, ever, let hurt feelings and fear stop communications between loved ones.
