Show Your Love

Show your love while it is day                                                                                                                  Gift your moments  to the one you love                                                                                              Night comes, time fades away

Find hours for shared work and carefree play                                                                                     Do not be left wanting for more                                                                                                          Show your love while it is day

Take care with what you say                                                                                                                Speak words that encourage, esteem, restore                                                                                  Night comes, time fades away

Every whim to give love, obey                                                                                                                 Any urge to be unkind, ignore                                                                                                              Show your love while it is day

To get time back you may pray                                                                                                           When life’s circumstance closes the door                                                                                         Night comes, time fades away

Build memories that stay                                                                                                                         You will rejoice in that treasure store                                                                                                 Show your love while it is day                                                                                                              Night comes, time fades away

    This poem is so touching, so reflective. Your repeating line deepens the meaning as I read through. Beautiful!

    Wonderful, touching, necessary! My favorite line is: Build memories that stay! Thank you for sharing this.

  3. Lovely and your words fit well in this form. “Every whim to give love, obey.
    Any urge to be unkind, ignore.” Beautiful advice.

  4. Dana says:

    The repeating lines were so beautiful and effective to really get it into the head of the reader how important it is to “Show your love while it is day” because “Night comes, time fades away”
    Such an important life lesson that is easier said than done at times. Bravo.

  5. Having done one myself I take my hat off to you – it is a challenging poem form. Well done!

  6. Betsy says:

    I too love the repeated lines, very full of meaning.
