My darling,

I wish I had danced with you at midnight

underneath winter's heavenly stars.

I should have drunk deeply from life's springs,

enjoying every sip of heaven's blessings

I needed to love deeply and often,

for I now realize it is only the love

we carry in our hearts -

Never the petty disagreements or forgotten hurts.

You, my love, gave me a gift.

Your passing made me realize that

No minute is ever ordinary…

Each moment in life is extraordinary,

Every encounter a gift.

And because of this,

I live each moment as if it is the last.

I do not take for granted

those whom I love.

Thus, I say often to the many

and to you, especially you,

"I love you."
