Taking for granted…

Why is so that we only realise
the true value of something
when it's no longer ours?
We go through days and years,
taking so much for granted.
We never pause and think,
think about all that we hold dear.
All that we can't live without, and yet,
all that we don't appreciate...
appreciate as much as we should.
We take too much for granted.
We never realise their value,
until it's too late.
They say,
You never realise the value of sight
unless you are blind.
We keep wanting more,
wishing for me,
agonising over what we don't have!
If only,
we took the time to realise
all the blessings that we have instead.

This October, I am taking my blog to the next level with Blogchatter’s #MyFriendAlexa.

I’m slightly preoccupied with some other stuff and hence my reading and replies to comments have taken a backseat. I’m so sorry about that. I’ll be back soon. Please bear with me till then.
