If I Knew

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in tighter
and pray the lord your soul to keep.

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

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise
I'd videotape each action and word,
so I could play them back day by 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 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 right.

There will always be another day
to say our "I love you"
certainly there's another chance
to say "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 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.

Always hold them near, and take time to say
"I'm sorry!" "Please forgive me!" "Thank you!" "It's ok!"
and if tomorrow never comes
you'll have no regrets about today.
