If Tomorrow Never Comes...

Scotty1June 1, 2002

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 KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time

I would be there to share your day,

we'll I'm sure you'll have so many more

I can't 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 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 and old alike,

And today may be the last chance

you get to hold your loved ones 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 the extra time

for a smile, a hug or a kiss,

and you were to busy to grant someone

what turned out to be their on 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 the 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.

Scotty, thanks for posting this. I lost five people close to me last year and with three of them the last words I said to them were "I love you" and their answer? "I love you, too!" Can't beat that.
