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 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
to stop and say, “I love you,”
Instead of assuming you KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Instead of thinking you’d have so many more,
So I just 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 just right.

There will always be another day
To say “I love you,”
And certainly there’s another chance
To say our “Anything I can do?”

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
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.
Don’t be too busy to grant someone,
What turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
And 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.

    Brrrr! So much snow! Love the poem you shared, Marie.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!


    Oh my your weather looks evil nice photos though LOL

    Happy Valentines to you and don’t do anything I would (just a reminder) 😉


    That poem is very bittersweet.
    Enjoy all that snow!



    Please keep that snow up there, ok? WOW, that’s a lot!! Happy shoveling…I mean Valentine’s Day! 😀


    Beautiful poem and I should never complain about the weather in the Bay Area. Have a great rest of the week.


    That looks so nice! Last week they forecasted rain for us – never happened. It is cooler though. If it was going to stay that hot, we would have had to get the swamp cooler up and running. Last week was warm enough for the snakes and the bats to come out of hiding. Good golly. I want more cool weather!


    It’s 70s and 80s now. Too hot!
    Enjoy the cuddling up Dolly!

Thanks for the lovely comment!
