POEMS


"If I Knew" by Scott Myers

11th September 2001 IN MEMORY OF ALL THOSE WHO PERISHED, THE PASSENGERS AND THE PILOTS OF UNITED AIRLINES AND AA FLIGHTS. THE WORKERS IN THE WORLD TRADE CENTRE AND THE PENTAGON, THE FIREMEN, THE POLICEMEN, THE FAMILIES AND ALL OF THE INNOCENT BYSTANDERS. OUR PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE FRIENDS AND FAMILIES OF THE DECEASED.

If I knew it would be the last time that I would see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in tightly and pray to God your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and a 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 word so I could play it 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 it.
If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day,
When I am sure you would have so many more so I could just let this one slip away.
For surely there is always tomorrow to make up for an oversight
and we will 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 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 isn't promised to anyone young or old alike
and today might be the last chance you get to hold your love one tight.
So if you're waiting for tomorrow , why not do it today,
For if tomorrow never comes, you will 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 last wish.
So hold your love ones close today and whisper in their ear,
tell them how much you love them and that you will 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 will have no regrets about today.
