IF I KNEW

one of e-mail forwards… i fall short of…

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.

    so?… should i deprive my girl to let her know how much she means to me?

    what if my day ends tomorrow?… what if… what if, i won’t wake
    up after a sleep? what if… what ifs…?

    life is not mine really…

    girl, i am sorry for the things, i missed to do… the things i made you angry at…

    sorry for not giving you enough of my time…

    sorry if there were times that i was not able to treat you well…

    sorry for the things that caused you confusions and madness…

    i am sorry…

    thank you for the times that we were together… happy… and mad
    at each other… spices, that make life even more meaningful…

    thank you for everything!… you are more than i could ever imagine
    i can be with… a girl, a fulfillment of my being… of my life…

    i love you for being you… of who you are!… for the unique you…
    for the irreplaceable you…

    i love you… for your loud laughters… for your kaartehan… i love you!

    i love you just because…

    if one day, my heart stops beating, i will still look for you in the next life…

    find you somewhere in time…
