“If you’re ever going to love me, love me now while I can know. All the sweet and tender feelings which from real affection flow. Love me now, while I’m living; do not wait ’til I am gone. And then chisel it on marble – words on ice, cold stone.
If you have dear sweet thoughts about me. Why not whisper them to me? Don’t you know it would make me happy and as glad as glad could be? If you wait until I’m sleeping, never to awaken here again, there will be walls of earth between us and couldn’t hear you then. I won’t need your kind caresses when the grass grows over 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 while I am living, so I can own it treasure it.
~Robert Paul Moreno 16/1/70 – 27/2/87

    One of my favorites in all of these thousand quotes. Not only it reminds us how short life is and therefore, make the most of it by showing love and giving love especially to the less fortunate.

    I just recently scanned the original hand-written copy of the poem “If You Are Ever Going To Love Me” which was written by my Uncle Lloyd E. Dawdy for his wife. He had added the notation “Written at the request of my beloved wife after she asked “When are you going to write something for me?”
