The Time Is Now ~ Author Unknown

Every once in a while I come
Across profound words
That bring me to tears
It happened to me today
I read this
As I listened to my children
Giggle in the background ...

If you are ever going to love me,

Love me now, while I can know

The sweet and tender feelings

Which from true affection flow,

Love me now while I am living,

Do not wait until I'm gone

And then have it chiseled in marble,

Sweet words on ice-cold stone.

If you have tender thoughts of me,

Please tell me now.

If you wait until I m sleeping,

Never to awaken,

There will be death between us,

and I won't hear you then.

So, if you love me, even a little bit,

Let me know it while I am living

So I can treasure it.
