    I love you
    Present Tense
    Right here, right now
    All of me is in love with you
    It's happening right before your eyes
    I'm loving you
    Present tense

    Can't do nothing about yesterday when I loved you
    Yesterday is gone
    One or both of us may not be here tomorrow
    So
    I love you
    Present tense

    Instant after instant
    Omnipresent
    Always now
    I love you
    Present tense

    As I am with you
    As you are with me
    As we share our souls
    We love
    Present tense
