If I Knew..

If I Knew…5/24/02
If I knew it would be the last time
That I’d see you fall asleep
I would hug you 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 could spare an extra minute
To stop and say, “I love you”
Instead of assuming you would know I 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
I get to hold you tight.
