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 this one slip away.
We had to live everyday,
not knowing if you'd leave
And praying to our God above,
That he too would believe,
That you were right where you belonged,
with a large, loving family.
But that all changed so quickly,
it seems unreal to me.
If I knew it would be the last time,
that I would hold you oh so tight,
I would have let the cleaning go,
and held you with all my might.
So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
your chance has slipped away.
