There’s one sad truth in life I’ve found

There’s one sad truth in life I’ve found
While journeying east and west –
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.

We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox (Wisconsin, EEUU, 1850 – Connecticut, 1919). Poeta y periodista.
