There Is No Better Time Than Now

There is no better time than now
To call that long lost friend;
To send a text, a friend request,
An argument to mend.
There is no better time than now
To have that special date,
With spouse or kids or anyone
And use the special plates.
There is no better time than now
To say things never said;
To use the special bathroom towels,
The good sheets on the bed.
There is no better time than now
To have that glass of wine;
To sit so still with friends and chill
And let talk pass the time.

See “now” is all the time we have;
Our only guarantee,
And even then we think of “when”
Instead of “may not be.”
We can’t go back and fix it all;
Those thoughts run through our minds
To redo this or spend more that,
To have just some more time…

So starting now, pick up the phone
Or text or send a card.
There’s never been a better time
To make life not so hard.
Soon, too soon, will come a time
And we will wonder how
We let the days just slip away
Wishing….
…there was no better time than now.
