If tomorrow never comes…

March 7th used to be such a cool day as it is both my mom and my grandpa’s birthday but ever since grandpa went to heaven June 25, 2006 it just isn’t the same. My poor mom who spent her life having such joy sharing her birthday with her dad has had such a hard time I can’t even begin to put that into words. As hard as it is for me her pain is so much heavier than my own, but tonight as I sit here reflecting on the upcoming anniversaries and birthday’s some questions were floating around in my head and as I started typing them I am reminded of the Garth Brooks song “If Tomorrow Never Comes”.

If tomorrow never came, would you be proud of the last thing you said to each person you love?

If “someday” was only “now”, would you do everything you’ve always put off?If you knew you had a choice about what kind of life you could be living, would you choose different?

If you knew failure is impossible, what would you do?

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

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

So tell that someone that you love
Just what you’re thinking of
If tomorrow never comes
