It can be too late!

Can a flower ever be lonely?

Regrets can weigh heavy on the heart that forgot to say, “I love you.” However, true inspiration comes from knowing that “I love you”, is not only said, but felt.

Two people from very different worlds have tried to communicate the feeling.

How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1806 – 1861

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Garth Brooks “If Tomorrow Never Comes”

Now it is your turn. Don’t wait until it is too late; that time will come, perhaps when you least expect it.

    • I checked one of your posts. You have some good ideas. May I humbly make a suggestion? I suggest that you use paragraphing to break up the text into more readable sections. [I don’t be to offend; I just happen to be a former English/Language Arts teacher. :)]

  2. Is this Ken by chance? This is Amanda who spoke with you on the phone the other day (if this is) and I love this post! I’m not sure if this is you, so I will wait to see if you reply.
