Don’t wait until you are losing someone,

To realise that you need to be there for them,

In the way that you should always have been there for them.

Maybe you didn’t really love them in the way

That you thought you loved them at all?

Too caught up in your own whirlwind

Of self-deprecation, or aggrandisement.

If you prepared yourself for the day when you would lose them,

Then you were never truly present with them.

That isn’t love, that is just biding your time,

Until you too lose yourself to the winds of change,

And are gone.

Don’t wait for time to pass you by before you decide,

That the time is now right,

It’s not, it’s an excuse,

And you will never get it back.

Opportunities, like love,

Are there to be taken and enjoyed,

When they arise. They have arisen for a reason,

And at exactly the right moment that you need them.

Life is too short; it dwindles so very quickly.

Don’t be so full of so much self pride, or self loathing,

That you cannot take charge of those opportunities

That greet you, as you stride so blatantly and  unaware through your day.

Appreciate those who honour your path with their presence,

As you them, with yours.

Don’t wait until you are losing someone,

To realise that you need to be there for them,

In the way that you should always have been there for them.

There is no time to lose, at all.

Not now, not ever.
