“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 am 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 am living
So I can treasure it.”
This is one of Dad’s favorite poems…
A timely reminder for all of us ~ today and every day.
If you love someone, please tell them today. Tomorrow isn’t promised us..
