I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.
I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more.
I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day.
to stop and say “I love you,” instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.
Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more, so I can let just this one slip away.
and we always get a second chance to make everything right.
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,
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?
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.
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”.
