Loved Ones
  
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 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 was sure you'd have so many more,
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 alright.

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 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're sure to regret today,
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 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.

Send this to all that you consider a friend.
Just to let them know how much you care about them.
You never know, you may not see them tomorrow.
So let them know how much  they mean to you
