The time to show love is today
Not the day after
But right now.
For no one knows tomorrow
And love shown the dead is love unseen
Cherish them when they still live
Visit them when they have breath
Check up on them at the least chance
For we never know
When they will depart.
Our regrets will not bring them back
Our nostalgic feelings will not raise them,
But the beautiful times spent will live on.
We wish we all knew what lies ahead
But we are not omniscient
Neither are we seers
To see tomorrow before us
But our ignorance in what lies ahead
Will not keep us in fear.
For love they say conquers all.
Let’s learn to love
Let’s show affection
Let’s be there for one another
Lest we live in regret tomorrow.
