We Will NOT forget
[Return to Topics]

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.

the best way to not forget is to support the troops who fight these cowards.

What fun is that, Clod, when you can put down somebody who disagrees with you? Must be nice to be a "real man" according to Ennis' definition.

Ya know, I think ya should find out what you are really unhappy about and work on that issue before you jump into any "real man" discussions.
Ron/PA should just ignore your insults as most intelligent people will.

It is my opinion that this is a thoughtful post. I know it mad me stop and be thankful for family and neighbors. It is also my opinion that replies such as this, that seems to be name calling and trying to pick a fight, are uncalled for.

I do not change my name and hide my identity. Do you? If you do.Why?

ennis    Posted 09-11-2004 at 12:44:03       [Reply]  [No Email]
that wasn't a put down that was my humble opinion.

See it? IMHO

The great thing about what ennis said is >> He did not hide his identity. that is one plus for him. I dont intend to run for the honor of being the most popular poster on this board. Because there is no honor in popularity if you have to stoop to recieve the award.
