Poets Corner

The time is now

July 29, 2000

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'm sleeping,
Never to awaken,
There will be death between us,
And I won't hear from you then.
So, if you love me, even a little bit,
Let me know it while I am living
So I can treasure it.

~ Monika Jain, San Jose, California, USA.
