The original plan was to start off a series on habit forming today, and we will, just a few days late. The Power Of Monotony coming to you on Monday. Today however, let’s make an effort to celebrate those we love… While we still can
Give her flowers while she’s living,
Love while she’s breathing,
Hugs and kisses while she’s still feeling.
She won’t be here forever – neither will you.
But you have now.
No point in thinking what you could have done.
Pour yourself out.
Love fully and deeply.
So when they leave they go fully deposited with your love,
And not with a rebounded cheque.
I don’t listen to rap much anymore but Eminem’s ‘When I’m Gone’ has embedded itself in my mind. The lyrics are brilliant and haunting. We should really celebrate people when they’re around. If we do so, when that time comes when you’ll no longer see their smile again, you can:
‘Just carry on don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice, just know that
I’m lookin’ down on you smilin’
And I didn’t feel a thing so baby, don’t feel no pain, just smile back…’
