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’d see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss, and call you back for just one more.

Title: If Tomorrow Never Comes – Engelbert Humperdinck
Lyrics: If Tomorrow Never Comes
Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
She’s lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feel
About her in my heart
If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes
‘Cause I’ve lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there’s no second chance to tell her how I feel

Thank you for posting this wonderful poem / lyrics by Humperdinck.
May we all give this a thought.
Thanks for sharing this lovely song, Mihran. <3
Very glad your enjoyed the clip and music…wish you a great week…
This is more timely than you can ever know. I was released from ICU yesterday after a slip and fall resulting in two brain bleeds. It was terrifying, but I was blessed and that no medical intervention was necessary.
I’ve always made it a point to let those that I ❤️ know how I feel, but I still felt that there was more to say when my baby brother died so many years ago. I’ve tried not to make the same mistake.
Blessings and 🙏🏽, I appreciate you. ❤️, Lydia
