Please Don’t Wait

Please don’t wait until you’re in a position to
lose me to tell me you love me, show me today
while I’m still in your presence unload every issue
off your chest, better late than never, time is too
precious to hold on to the past.

Please don’t wait until the holidays or birthdays to
show me some love and compassion; embrace me
while I’m still alive, life can change direction
in the blink of an eye; don’t just look me in the eye
and walk away with regret; learn to love me
just the way I am.
