Do It Now!

All the kind words, Say.
Share old memories with me.
Express your love for me.
Do It Now! While I can hear.

Reach out, Touch me, Feel me.
Wrap your arms around me.
Kiss my cheeks, Rub my back.
Do It Now! While I can feel.

Flowers for me? Give them.
Cards? Letters? Gifts? Send them,
Drive the long ride to my house.
Do It Now! While I can see.

A drink of water for me?
Baked chicken? Turkey? Fish? Rice?
A bowl of beans? A slice of bread? Give.
Do It Now! While I can taste.

Don't wait for me to die.
It wont matter what you do then.
Say it, Do it, Send it, Give it.
Do It Now! While I am alive.
