If I knew….


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 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
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 let just 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 just right.

There will always be another day
to say “I love you,”
And certainly there’s another chance
to say our “Anything I can 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
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 too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and 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.

To carry on!

You can shed tears that he has gone
or you can smile because he has lived
You can close your eyes and prey that he will come back
or you can open your eyes and see all he has left
Your heart can be empty because you cannot see him
or you can be full of the love you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember him and only that he has gone
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind
be empty and turn your back
or you can do what he would want
– smile, open your eyes,
love and go on

Vi kan lade tårerne flyde, fordi han ikke er her mere.
Eller vi kan smile, fordi han har levet.
Vi kan lukke vores øjne og bede til, at han må komme tilbage.
Eller vi kan åbne vore øjne og se alt det, han efterlod.
Vore hjerter kan føles tomme, fordi vi ikke kan se han.
Eller vi kan være fyldt
med den kærlighed og det fællesskab, vi delte.
Vi kan vende ryggen til i morgen og leve af i går.
Eller vi kan hædre hans minde og lade det leve videre.
Vi kan græde og lukke vores sjæl.
Eller vi kan gøre, hvad han ville ønske:
Smile, åbne øjnene, elske og værdsætte hinanden
og fortsætte rejsen.
