If Tomorrow Never Came


If Tomorrow Never Came

If I knew it would be the last time
That I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug
And call you back for one more

If I know 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 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 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 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 maybe 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 to busy to
Grant someone, what turned out
To be their one last wish

So hold your loved ones close
Today to 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.
