What do you really care about
When it's all been said and done?
What are the things that seem to shout…
Can you name them one by one?

Who do you see when you close your eyes?
Whose face floats into view?
Do you know if they realize
How much they mean to you?

What do you think that it would take
Just to let this person know…
What a difference it might make
If you were to tell them so…

Oh such a simple thing and yet,
So often we are blind--
To live with the wisdom and still forget
Those who fill our heart and mind!
