Poem: Before it is Too Late

If you have a tender message, or a loving word to say;

Do not wait till you forget it, but whisper it today.

The tender word unspoken, the letter never sent,

the long forgotten message, the wealth of love unspent;

For some hearts are breaking, for these some loved ones wait;

So show them that you care for them, before it is too late.
