Love Me Now

THE TIME IS NOW

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 till I am gone
And 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 till 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.

Too Late

Around the corner I have a friend
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone
And I never see my old friend's face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell,
And he rang mine.

If, we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
"Tomorrow" I say "I will call on Jim"
"Just to show that I'm thinking of him."
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner - yet miles away,
"Here's a telegram sir - Jim died today."

And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.
If you love someone, tell them.
Remember always to say what you mean.
Never be afraid to express yourself.
Take this opportunity to tell someone
what they mean to you.
Seize the day and have no regrets.

Most importantly, stay close to your friends
and family, for they have helped make you
the person that you are today and are what
it's all about anyway.
The difference between expressing love
and having regrets is that the regrets may
stay around forever.
