If...

If I knew 
that today 
would be the last time I’d see you, 
I would hug you tight 
and 
pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul. 

If I knew 
that this would be 
the last time you pass through this door,
 I’d embrace you,
 kiss you,
 and call you back for one more.

If I knew 
that this would be 
the last time I would hear your voice,
I’d take hold of each word
to be able to hear it over and over again.

If I knew 
this is the last time I see you, 
I’d tell you I love you, 
and would not just assume foolishly 
that you know it already.
