I'd see you fall asleep,
I'd tuck you in more tightly,
And pray your soul to keep.
I'd see you walk out the door,
I'd hug you and kiss you--and call you
Back for just one more.
We'd spare a minute or two,
I'd stop and say "I love you,"
Instead of assuming you know I do.
I'd be there to share your day,
I wouldn't wait until tomorrow,
Letting time with you slip away.
To make up for an oversight,
And we'll always get a second chance
To make everything all right.
To say our "I love yous,"
And certainly there's another chance
To say our "What I can dos."
And today is all I get,
I'd like to say I love you,
And hope you never forget.
Young or old alike,
And today might be your last chance
To hold your loved one tight.
Why not do it all today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
You will surely regret the day
For a smile or hug or kiss.
And you surely aren't too busy to grant
What may be their last wish.
And whisper in their ear;
Tell them how much you love them,
And that you'll always hold them dear.
"Forgive me," or "It's okay,"
And if tomorrow never comes,
You'll have no regrets about today.
