Love Me Now

 If you are ever going to love me,
Love me now, while I can know
The sweet and tender feelings,
Those from true affection flow.

Love me now while I am living,
Do not wait until I'm gone
And then chisel them 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,
Death has come between us
And I won't hear you then.

So if you know you love me,
Even a little bit,
Let me know while I am living,
So I can treasure it.
