"IF I KNEW"

"IF I KNEW"

By Tommy Patrick


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'd 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
that 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
that 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
that I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let this one just 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 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 your waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day.

That you didn't take the 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.

Forever
In
My
Heart
Don't ever stop loving the people that surround you each and every day that have changed
your life tremendously and have given you the strength to hold on. Don't ever think you can't tell
them how much they mean to you and if it wasn't for them, you don't know where you would be.
Because, one day, they could be gone, and you didn't get to tell them how much they changed
you as a person, or how much of an impact they had in your life. Don't ever miss the chance to tell
them thank you and how much you love them.
