If I Knew

If   I knew it would be the last time That I’d see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly and  pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss and   call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time I’d 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’ll 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’d 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 may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll  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’ll always hold them dear.
Take time to say “I’m sorry,” “Please   forgive me,” “Thank you,” or “It’s okay.” And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll   have no regrets about today.

If we only knew what is going to happen tomorrow, then we would take better care of our TODAY!

With many peaceful blessings

Geoffrey
