Life and love must be expressed
Right now; it cannot wait
To find a more convenient time ...
Or it may be too late.
Opportunities can pass
Too soon, before we'd know;
Procrastination overtakes;
Then, fear and anguish grow.

In the heart is cradled there
Enough to more than cope
And bless each life with happiness,
With love and faith and hope.
When these blessings are expressed
By all -- the young -- the old --
It could never be too late,
Would that the Truth be told.
