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 would see you walk out the door, 

I would give you a hug and a 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 can 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 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 slip away;

 

For surely there’s always tomorrow 

to make up for the oversight 

And we always get a second chance 

To make everything right. 

 

There will always be another day

To say “I love you” 

And certainly, there’s another chance 

To say “Is there anything I can do?” 

 

But just in case I might be wrong 

And today is all I get, 

I 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 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 the 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, 

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.

 

I Love you my sweet wife!
