Had I known you would be leaving,
I would have stayed.
If you had said, “ it’s just this evening,”
I would have known.
Had I known after that moment,
You would be gone.
I would have taken the time to tell you,
How much I care.
Life is so fleeting and we can get so caught up in it that we forget to stop and smell the roses. We see them, but we don’t take the time to appreciate them.
