    Another beautiful poem to share with you all

    IF I KNEW

    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 l 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 t o be their
    one last wish.

    So hold your loved ones close
    to
    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

    My Dear MIL

    We "youngsters" are "nocturnal"...I can stay awake till 2a.m or 3a.m or even the whole night, studying something...Can u try n succeed in not closing your eyelids after 11p.m or 12???shakehead You cant do it for your age..The same way its tough for me to do that during afternoon times n that too coming home exhausted all the way..My dear sweetie, you can say all this sitting n enjoying that cold temp..Come down to Chennai n experience this very hot weather..
    Then tell me whether you feel like taking rest after spending a sunny day out or you would feel like "adding some more activities in your life"..
