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 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.

 

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.
 
it would be the last time,
    I could spare an extra minute or two,
to stop and say that "I love you,"
    Instead of assuming that you KNOW I do.
 
it would be the last time,
    I would be there to share you 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 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 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 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,
    whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
    And that you'll always hold them dear.
 
Take the time to say ...
 
 
           
                
                           
And if tomorrow never comes,
    you'll have no regrets about today.
