If Today Was My Last Day

If I should die before I wake


I’d live each moment


like it was the last breath I’d take


If today was my last day


and tomorrow was to late


I’d spend less time contemplating


if this was destiny, or fate


I’d put everything aside


leave behind my fears


and especially my pride


All the things in my past


I’d leave them there


if it were my last


If today was my last day


I’d tell you all the little things


I forgot to say


I’d give back every single


dime, If I could just


rewind the hands of time


Always looking for happiness


above and beyond


taking for granted, you’d


never be gone


Id fall to my knees


“Dear God, please


give me this last request.


To hold my boy’s


close to my chest.”


Will they know my name


in this new place? Would


they call me Mommy,


if they saw my face?


My heart just


aches in utter sorrow.


Knowing I have to endure


another tomorrow.


I can only pray,


they hear my cry;


“My Shanie and Tyty,


Mommy loves you. Good bye.”
