You didn’t appreciate

your life

until it was nearly gone.

You didn’t appreciate


until you had none.

You didn’t appreciate

the world

until you opened up your eyes.

You didn’t appreciate

the truth

until you heard all your own lies.

You didn’t appreciate


until you were shown.

You didn’t appreciate

your wife

until you were left all alone.

Take a moment to think

of these things,

then appreciate the joy

that living can bring.
