If Tomorrow Never Comes...

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.

RE: If Tomorrow Never Comes...

The best three words there is. Thanks!!
