If Tomorrow Never Comes


[From an email]


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 videotape 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 I say “ I love you,”

instead of assuming you would know I do.


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 am sorry,”

“ please forgive me,”

“ Thank you “or “ It’s okay “

and if tomorrow never comes,

you ‘ll have no regrets about today.
