When She Is Gone

When she is gone

There will be sorrow

And regrets.

When she is gone

There will be questions

Without answers.

When she is gone

There will be chances no more

And opportunity gone.

When she is gone

The stories

Will go with her.

When she is gone

The laughter she has

Goes with her.

When she is gone

You cannot

Go to her.

When she is gone

It won’t matter

That you meant to.

When she is gone

Only the memories

You took time to make

Will remain.

    Great encouragement for telling each and every special loved one or dear friend everything you are grateful for: Now! πŸ™‚
    This was a living tribute to a woman who is special.

    I think this almost daily about my Mom. And also of my Mother in law and some other dear special ladies. I wish that each day I could capture their life and their experience. So I try to capture a bit with each conversation but I know it is not enough!

  8. This is wonderful and so true. When she is gone, the stories and laughter will go with her. We need to enjoy our loved ones while they are still with us and hear all the stories they are willing to give.


  9. So well said and important. Make the memories today, spend the time doing it, so they keep you warm tomorrow. ❀

    I think of this every day. We should really be this aware of everyone in our lives, but when we have elderly loved ones, there is urgency to make those memories and hold onto them.
