For those that have been sent on a different journey, may their new journey be an adventure.

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,
I would stop to 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 this one slip away.
For surely there's always tomorrow,
to make up for an oversite,
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 incase I may be wrong,
and today is all we 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 where to busy to grant someone
what turned out to be their 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.
