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
> 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 just right.
> There will l always be another day
> to say "I love you,"
> And certainly there's another chance
> to say our "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 I 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.
> 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,
> and whisper in their ear,
> Tell them how much y! ou 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.
