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.

It I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door
I would give you a hug and kiss you
and call you back for one more

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice sing in praise,
I would tape each action and word,
so I could play them back every 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 many more,
so I can 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 all right.

There will always be another day or so,
to say our "I love you's,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say is "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,
whether 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 just do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you will surely regret that day.

That you didn't take that extra time,
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
And you were just too busy,
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,"
"forgive me,"
"thank you"
or "it's okay"
And if tomorrow never comes....
You will have NO regrets about today!
