If only I knew.. 

If I knew it would be the last time 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 I’d see you walk out the door,

I would give you a hug and kiss you, and call you back for more..
If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise,

I would videotape 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 or so

to stop and say “I love you”, instead of you assuming you would know I do..
If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day,

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 right.
