My neighbor is wailing and rolling on the ground right now because she just lost her friend. With all she’s saying, the one thing that is loudest is the fact that she didn’t get to say goodbye because they had a small squabble at their last encounter.
This has got me thinking why do we wait? Why do we wait instead of telling someone how much you love them everyday?
Why do we wait for someone to die before we buy them flowers, when they never received a single tulip from us whilst alive?
Why do we wait until it’s too late before we think of telling our loved ones how much they matter and just how much we love them?
Why do we wait until a person is in a grave and can no longer hear the sweet words we have to offer at his funeral? why did we let this person go through life without hearing such sweet words which would have encouraged him, from us?
Why do we wait until a man has finally died of hunger before we provide excess food and drinks at his funeral?
Why do we wait until cold has cleared off his life before we bury him in the most expensive attire, whilst we gave him our old over-used attires when he was alive?
Somebody please explain to me, why do we wait?
