H/T Dear Abby...this morning

THE TIME IS NOW

Author Unknown

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 I am living

So I can treasure it.


It you think of it, we are going to the city today. Hopefully this is it, except for checkups. Thank you to all my family, and especially my blogging friends.

I liked that! Love is definitely a "now" thing.

My MIL, Rest in Peace, used to say, "If you have flowers for me, give them to me now..."

Charlene said...

That is wonderful.

I always tell my friends that I don't want any flowers at the funeral. Give me flowers now! Say you love me now! That's what I try to do for everyone.
