Why is it that humans take the things they love most for granted,
Only to miss them when they've gone.
We pass them by, or abuse them until we're recanted*,
And when they leave, we act like its a phenomenon.
If you just take the time,
And make sure to give thanks for what you have,
then the things you love most will be sublime**!
Do those simple steps and your pain will halve.
*verb: formally reject or disavow a formerly held belief, usually under pressure.
**adjective: inspiring awe.
