If I Knew
If I knew it would be the 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 tine 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 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,
an we always get a second chance to make everthing just right.
There will always be another day to say "I love you."
And certainly there's another chance to say "Anything I can do?"
But 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 maybe 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 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, and 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.

If people could realize this, that tomorrow is not promised to no one this world would be a better place and we would not live with regrets. Beautiful poem.
