Love Me Now Or Never

Love me now while

I can love you in return

Love me now when, at will

I can turn on and off the lantern

Love me now while, still

I can breathe or inhale easily

Love me now while

I can see clearly your beauty

Don’t wait for tomorrow

When I can no longer see the transient rainbow

When I can no longer walk on my own

And when I cannot feel the freshness of dawn

Love me not solely on Valentine’s Day

But also when I erringly go astray

Love me now or never

So I can remain blessed and blissful forever

Regardless of my state of mind

Don’t stop being sweet and kind

To my soul, to my heart

And to my body, before I depart.
