Say, “I Love You!”


No one expects this day to be their last. When we go to work we expect to return. When we leave on a trip we plan to return home again.  But nothing in life is certain. The concert goers in Las Vegas did not expect the tragic events they encountered. I say all this to emphasize how important it is to remember to express our love to those around us every day. We never know when it will be our last.

I Love You

Don’t let a day go by without love

A word a smile a touch

Given over and over again

Like you favorite song it never grows old

Don’t let a day go by without love

One never knows what is to come

Breath takes only seconds to leave

The soul takes rise the body and is gone

Say I love you with a smile

Don’t let a day go by without love

A helping hand a word of encouragement

Light and fire to revive and lift the soul

Bring joy and happiness to all

Show you care say it with love

Don’t let a day go by without love

No matter how you feel

What’s said in anger pierces the heart

Draining out love’s reserves

Words of love are saved in the heart

Remembered for ever treasured gifts

Don’t let a day go by without love

Put Id and Ego aside

Express your love to the one you love

Let them know you care

Who knows when this day will be your last

A chance to say I Love you could soon be passed

  1. You mirror our sentiments exactly. Each day is a gift, one that we should take seriously and thankfully. But we do need reminders because “life” creeps in and we forget how fleeting the days may be.
    Thanks so much for following Oh, the Places We See. Here’s hoping you enjoy our travels and seeing how we try to do as much as we can while we can.

    Jealous of your “painting skill” I would need more hours in the day to do that but it is on my bucket list!

    • Thank you Chuck! The older I get the more I realize what is really important. This is one of them. Your kind words are appreciated. Give painting a try it is not so hard! Just look at Bob Ross on PBS!!
