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

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’m sure you’ll have so many more
So I can let just 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 right

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’ll surely regret the day

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
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
