The Last Time For Us

If you knew it would be the last time
That you’d see me fall asleep
would you tuck me in more tightly
and pray the Lord, my soul to keep

If you knew it would be the last time
That you’d see me walk out the door
would you give me a hug and a kiss
and call me back for one more

If you knew it would be the last time
You’d hear my voice lifted up in praise
would you video tape each action and word
so you could play them back day after day

If you knew it would be the last time
would you spare an extra minute or two
To stop and say “I love you”
instead of assuming that you knew I do

If you knew it would be the last time
would you be there to share my day
which you thought I’d have many more
so you can just let this one slip away

Sure you thought there is always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight
hoping we’d always get a second chance
to make everything right

Will there be another day
to exchange our “I love you’s”
Will there be another chance
to say “Anything I can do?”

Just in case you may be wrong
and today is all I have
I’d like to say how much I love you
hoping you’ll never forget

Today is not promised to anyone
Young or old alike
and today maybe the last chance
we get to hold each other tight

Why wait for tomorrow?
Why not today?
What if tomorrow never comes
then you’ll regret the day

That you didnt take the extra time
to say a hello, give a smile or a kiss
Coz you’re too busy to wish that someone
what if it turned out to be her last wish?
So hold her close to your heart today
and whisper to her how much she means to you
that you’ll always hold her dear

Take time to say “I’m sorry, forgive me”
“Thank you” or “Its okay”
Coz if tomorrow never comes
at least you’ll never regret for today

  1. What a beautiful poem, and how often we forget.

  2. Very true, because the norm is, most of us prefer to assume things are okay.
