If Tomorrow Never Comes

The following poem was selected by Denise Puglisi, Scott’s mother, to remind family and friends that tomorrow is not promised!

If Tomorrow Never Comes…

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.
If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would tape each word and action, and play them back throughout my days
If I knew it would be the last time, I would spare an extra minute or two,
to stop and say “I LOVE YOU,” instead of assuming you know I do.
So just in case tomorrow never comes, and today is all you get,
let your friends and family know how much you love them,
and hope they 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 to be their one
last wish.
So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear,
that you love them very much, and you’ll always hold them dear.
Take the time to say “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,”  or “It’s okay,”
and if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.
