POEM NOW, LOVE ME NOW

Look no special day to love me,
Love me in the here and now,
Remember it´s today and not tomorrow.

Now that I'm alive I need you,
I need to hear "I love you"
I need a hug.

Now that I'm alive,
I prefer a single call,
And no an unexpected trip when I die.

Time is something that goes,
So now, love me now,
I don´t ask anything else.

I don´t want to beg for your love,
So what is begged it is not a love,
Love has no monetary price.

Now I prefer one of your lines
And not a great epitaph,
When I die.

Now, love me now ...
