Don’t let me walk out the door void of the love and respect I so dearly needed. Tell me how much you care. I need to know my work wasn’t in vain. Give me a smile or a hug. If I made a difference don’t keep it a secret. Find the time to not let time slip away. Was I the lily in your valley? Was I the violet shining in the sun? Did my daisy’s make you happy? When I sacrificed myself for the greater good, how did the fruits of my labor change your life? I always wondered if the beauty of my heart was big enough to be seen by the world. Don’t wait until it’s too late to give me my flowers. I hope I don’t sound arrogant, but it is my fear that if we ignore the love and work of our peers, they will never know their impact. So tell me now. Don’t wait until the end is gone.
