Are you Loving Enough?

 Are you loving enough? There is some one dear,
Some one you hold as the dearest of all
In the holiest shrine of your heart.
Are you making it known? Is the truth of it clear To the one you love? If death's quick call Should suddenly tear you apart, Leaving no time for a long farewell, Would you feel you had nothing to tell--- Nothing you wished you had said before The closing of that dark door? Are you loving enough? The swift years fly--- Oh, faster and faster they hurry away, And each one carries its dead.
The good deed left for the by and by, The word to be uttered another day, May never be done or said.
Let the love word sound in the listening ear, Nor wait to speak it above a bier.
Oh the time for telling your love is brief, But long, long, long is the time for grief.
Are you loving enough?
