If you are ever going

to love me,

Love me now,

while I can know

The sweet and tender


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.
