Will you be mine? (Love poem 111 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Will you be mine?
When will that be?
I have been waiting for you,
But it’s taking too long;
The time is long over due;
You better be mine,
And make it now;
Let’s not wait for tomorrow;
What if tomorrow
Never comes?
That which we have to do,
Let us do now;
And stop procrastinating,
Which will achieve nothing
Except to steal your time.
I invite you here and now
To make hay while
The sun shines;
I want you to be mine;
And I don’t want it tomorrow;
I want it now.
So you tell me, please:
Will you be mine?
