I love you,
Things I Want My Children to Know:
If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you fall asleep,
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 that you know I do.
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 "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 sure regret the day,
That you didn't take extra time for a smile, a hug or kiss,
And you were too busy to grant someone what turned out to be their 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 "I'm sorry, "Please forgive me", "Thank you" or "It's okay".
And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today.
