If I Knew

Rays of Wisdom - Words Of Wisdom For Friendship Healing - If I Knew

If I knew it would be the last time
That I’d watch you fall asleep,
I’d make you as comfortable as I can
And pray to the Highest to keep you safe, forever.

If I knew it would be the last time
That I see you walk out of the door,
I would give you a hug and a kiss
And then call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I heard your beloved voice,
I would make a recording of it,
So I could hear it whenever I wanted.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
To stop and say: ‘I love you,’
Instead of assuming that you know I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
And I hope you still have many more,
I would not let this one slip away.

I trust there will always be tomorrow
To make up for each oversight,
And that we shall get a second chance
To make things between us just right.

That there will always be another day
To say: ‘I love you,’
And another chance
For saying: ‘Anything I can do?’

But just in case that I am wrong,
And today is all I get,
I’d like you to know how much I love you
And that I shall never forget you.

There is no promise for tomorrow for anyone,
Young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
To hold our loved ones tight.

So instead of waiting for tomorrow,
Why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
We shall not have to regret it

That we didn’t take a bit of time
For a smile, a hug and a kiss,
And that we aren’t too busy to grant someone
What turns out to be their last wish.

So let’s hold our loved ones close today
And whisper in their ear
How much we love them
And that we shall always hold them dear.

Let’s take time to say things like: ‘I’m sorry.’
‘Please forgive me!’, ‘Thank you.’ and ‘It’s okay!’
And should tomorrow never come,
There will be no need for regrets
About having missed a day.
