When the opportunity arises to express love,
I hesitate: seconds later,
I’ve missed my chance.
A cold, heavy weight drops into my stomach;
drowning disappointment, I sink further each moment…
I’m jolted awake-
It’s never too late!
Run to that person: say what you’ve always wanted to
wrap them in your embrace.
If you truly care, show it-
you may never be this lucky again,
don’t let it slip away.
What is kindness without action?
Be brave, I tell myself. That’s all it takes…
it feels better to know I took a leap of faith.
Nothing is more valuable than this
yet, it costs nothing to give.
