IF I KNEW...



If i knew it will be the last time
that i would see you fall asleep
i would tuck you in more tightly
and pray for the lord, your soul to keep.

If i knew it will be the last time,
i would hear your voice lifted up in praise
i would video tape each action and word
so i could play them back day after day.

If i knew it would be the last time
i could spare an extra minute
to stop and say " I LOVE YOU",
instead of assuming you would KNOW i do.

If i knew it would be the last time
i would be there to share your day
well i'm sure you will have so many more
so i can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say " i love you," and certainly there's
another chance to say our " anything i can do?"

But just in case i might be wrong,
and today is all i get,
i would like to say how much i love you
and i hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
and today maybe the last chance 
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So, if you are waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
for if tomorrow never comes,
you will surely regret the day.

That you didn't take that extra time
for a SMILE, a HUG, or a KISS
and you were too busy to grant someone
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So, hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
tell them how much you love them,
and that you will always hold them dear.

Take time to say " i'm sorry dear",
"please forgive me", "thank you sunshine", or "its okay darling".
and if tomorrow never comes,
you will have no regrets about today.. <3
