Not when it's convenient, but when love is unfolding and blossoming.
When you feel so full from this feast that you feel you will bust with delight.
Delight that you can feel love alive in your body and spirit.
Don't wait till they move around the other side of the world
Or become so ill that it feels obligatory to utter these words.
Tell them in the light of day when you clearly see them before you.
As well as in the shadows of night when the soft light outlines their silhouette.
Honor them by reciting all the ways in which you feel loved.
Thank them for all the ways that they unconditionally love you.
Make it a point to notice when you reach out to them.
Also make it a point to notice when you retract.
Invite them into this sacred place of your heart, and tend to them.
Tend to them with love letters and correspondence that only you can share.
Decorate their hearts with all the jewels that they have shared with you.
Adore their presence. Adore their absence.
Don't wait until it's convenient.
Let them know today how much you love them.
