A poem that I came across while cleaning out my room. I wanted to save it somewhere and thought I would share it here.
Love Me Now
If you’re ever going to love me, love me now, while I can know.
All the sweet and tender feelings which from real affections flow.
Love me now, while I am living, do not wait until I’m gone.
And then Chisel in marble – warm love words on ice cold stone.
If you’ve dear sweet thoughts about me, why not whisper them to me?
Don’t you know, t’would make me happy and as glad as glad can be?
If you wait until I am sleeping, ne’er to wake here again.
There will be walls of earth between us and I couldn’t hear you then.
If you knew that someone was thirsting for a drop of water sweet
Would you be so slow to bring it? Would you step with laggard feet?
there are tender hearts all around us who are thirsting for our love
Why withhold from them what nature makes them crave all else above?
I won’t need your kind caresses when the grass grows o’er my face
I won’t crave your love or kisses in my last low resting place
So then, if you love me any, if it’s but a little bit
Let me know it now while I am living, I can own and treasure it.
