The Time is Now

author unknown, from Annie's Mailbox column:

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 while I am still living,
So I can treasure it


I remember when my son was in a coma after his accident that one of the things that consoled me was that the night before he had given me a kiss goodnight.

It's so important to let the people we love know so we won't be tormented by regret later.

Just thought I'd pass on this reminder.
