If You Love Me by Anneliese Garrison, RN
© written 4/87

If you love me, let me know.
Don't wait until I am old.

If I go without love,
I am like a rose without rain.
Wtihout rain, a rose will die.
Without love, I will do the same.

My dear, don't wait until I'm gone
to realize how special I was.

Don't wait until I lay on the lawn
to put the first rose in my hand.
Although this gesture is sweet,
what does it matter now that I am gone?

Love, sweet love is something
everyone understands.

So, I reach out for love.
Please, place it in my hands.
