If I Knew It

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Got this out of a Knights of Columbus paper, It's real good.

If I Knew It:

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 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 many more, so I can let this one just slip away.
For surely there’s always tomorrow, to make up for an oversight. We always get a second
chance, to make everything right. There will always be another day, to say our “I love
you,” And certainly there’s another chance to say our “Anything I can do for you?”
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. 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; that 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, telling 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.
