AS some of you know already , My hubby has gone through major surgery not long ago , when something like that happen and there are days you don't know how you are going to get through or what is going to happen in the future , It makes you really think , I wrote this to help some others . xx IF THERE'S SOMEONE SPECIAL If there's someone special Tell them that you care Because when comes tomorrow They just might not be there Don't leave until tomorrow What can be said today You just put your arms around them And this is what you say I hope you know I love you I just want you to know So please don't feel embarrassed If your feelings you do show

I hope your husband will be well again very soon. Your poem is beautiful, and so true. Unfortunately, I've had a lot of loss, and grief in my life, and now that I'm a bit older, I realize more and more how precious time with family and friends is. I also know the value of telling those close to you that you love them, even if certain people don't feel comfortable with their emotions.

very warming poem. I believe that puts my words of how I feel. I always make a point to tell my wife and son I love them when I leave for work. It does not matter if we have had a fight, or they are sleeping, or I have their full attention. I always think of what if something happens when I go to work, I may never have another opportunity to tell the.

Very nice ~ You are so right - it is better to let them know and show how you care. We've been through some rough times too and it makes a difference knowing that the other person is there for you.

Yes this is very true as we never know what happens tomorrow and that is why I always tell my husband that I love him even if he does not say the same back to me as long as I know that I have done the right thing as if he was gone tomorrow my conscience would be clear that I had told him while he was still here and also I tell me children and my friends as well even if we do not see each other and its only by phone I make sure that I tell them how much I care.

ya it is important to tell it to others and to tell it often. i once read a story of a single child whose parents were not expressive . that girl found somethign missing in her life when she moved to a hostel and found others so comfortably closing their phone calls to their parents with 'i love u'. she consciously became expressive and started to say it often to her parents. by and by her parents also became equally expressive. eventually when she lost her mother she could fight the lonliness by the echo of those wionderful words her mother had often said to her... i am expressive and make others around me also express their feelings by coaxing them to pamper me!

i have always found it easy to say it to my children and grandchildren and also hubby but I find it easier now to say it all the time to them as I have grown older xxxx

You are really talented. You should put a book of your poetry together and have it published. You may be an undiscovered Robbie Burns. xxx

It certainly puts life into perspective when you go through something like what you're going through my friend. When you have to treat life as every day is the last day. Having friends and family around you takes off the burden and strain and knowing that you have support and that you are not alone. Being alone and coping with life is difficult enough without seeing a loved one suffer or the prospect of a loved one being cruelly taken away.

its a wonderful poem/thinking actually, full of hopes and courage... i really admire people like you, my mom had a paralysis attack ... doctors lost the hope, they said she wont last for more than 2 weeks and my dad took wonderful care of her every single need and was always there for her... she lived for entire 2 years and once we all felt that she would make it ... she almost started speaking and responded with her actions .... i know how it feels to be there... its like i've been there i've done that... it takes a lot to maintain the integrity and do the service to the person whom we so much cared for ... its just great to see people like you ... thanks sid

I hope your hubby grows in strength day by day. Valentines Day was the anniversary of my double coronary bypass operation. I was convinced I wouldn't survive it, but now, a year later I am going from strength to strength and heartwise have never looked back! Having been through that, I really appreciate what you're saying in your poem.

So beautiful and true! I think along those term a lot, to the point of always worring it seems, but so many things have happend. I try to make them feel how much I love them even when I am mad at them. For like you said, tomorrow may never come for them or you.

Most of the time people take each other for granted and don't take the time to show or even say that you love them. The time is now to let them know. Once they are gone you never have that opportunity again. I think people should make that their priority but so many times I hear I should have told them but I didn't. I really liked your poem and it oh, so true. It is a beautiful poem!

It is beautiful weemam. I just hope that your husband is doing much better now. You're right with what you said, you never know what is going to happen tomorrow, good or bad. So i guess that the best thing we can do is live each day as if it were the last, not recklessly but intensely. We will have time to wonder about the "what if"'s when we're 6 feet under :)

This is beautiful, and how true! I realized the true meaning of this my summer when we almost lost my younger brother. I just can't understand it when I hear of someone who has no contact with a parent or sibling for many years. You really never know how long you'll have them. My brothers and I have always been close, thank God, but it is important to tell people that you Love them every chance you get. I hope you and your Hubby had a nice Valentine's Day!

Thanks-- that was beautiful and so true-- Keep up the good work. Good luck to you and your husband. Don't forget to tell him how special he is to you today on Valentine's day and everyday- I know with our busy lives it gets hard sometimes to stop and show our love- This poem was great and reminded me that I need to do this!
