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 or two


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 right.



There will always be another day


to say our "I love you's,"


and certainly there's 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 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,


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.
