Many of us don't appreciate what we have
Until something happens taking it away
Only then do we realize how fragile life is
Like sunlight fades at the end of each day.
Our wisdom increases as the years pass by
During twilight years we begin to understand
Each moment we are given is a blessing in itself
We spend time with loved ones anytime we can.
Each chance you get tell loved ones you love them
Because tomorrow might never come for them or you
If you're like me you'll feel good expressing your love
Because tomorrow skies might be dark instead of blue.
