WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE






WHAT THEY SAY IS TRUE



It certainly is true what they say
And it can`t be denied in any way
That we never miss something/someone
Until it or they have truly gone.





This is when the hurt really kicks in
As we can feel the loss deep within
And this is when we begin to reflect
On our loss and the full effect.





A loss is a loss no matter what
And sadness now is all we have got
Keepsakes, memories we cling to these
Hoping our pain they will help to appease.





So treasure what we love while we may
Because sadly there will come a day
Something for which we never prepare
As we think they will always be there.





It takes a loss to make us realize
That we all face our own demise
We can`t escape there is no way out
And it will happen without a doubt.
