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 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, you would know I do.
If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your
day,well I’m sure you’ll have so many more, so I can let just this one
For surely there’s always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything right.
There will always be another day to say our “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 I 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 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’m sorry,” “please forgive me,” “thank you” or “it’s okay”.
And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world,
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors
