Say Love Now Bet Briggs



Love not told
to them we love
by word or deed
is love withheld

Unsaid I care I love
is care ungiven
love locked inside
heart made inarticulate.

Say it now: to wait
is to deny the word
that swells the heart.

Say it now: delay
will only cause regret
and no one gains.

Denial and delay
mean anguish unresolved,
tears will not wash away the hurt
when caring comes too late.

Time present is a gift
too vital to forgo
too precious to lament
our forsaking it.

Say love now and let
the heart be eloquent.
