If Tomorrow Never Comes

If 1 knew it would be the last time 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 more.

If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted 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 you never forget, Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your lovedone 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,”
or “it’s okay”. And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have
NO regrets about today.
