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 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 or two To stop and say "I love you," Instead of assuming you already KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, assuming you'll have so many more So I can just let 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 alright.

There will always be another day To say our "I love you's" And there's certainly another chance to say Our "anything I can do's?"

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 this day.

That you didn't take the 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 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.
