If you like someone, let them know.
If you appreciate them, tell them so.
If you love someone, let it show.
It will mean more than you can know.
If you think of someone, let them know.
Do these things before they're gone, 
because once they're gone, they'll never know. 
So if you feel love, let it show,
For that 's the way love does grow.
