Today this poem came across my mind ...

It's an old poem by Norma Cornett Marek titled ...

"Tomorrow Never Comes"

.

.

I wonder why often I spend so much energy on being right than being kind..

Wasting time on something that will absolutely have no meaning to me at the end of the day.

.

.

If that day actually arrives, do I gonna have any regret?

.

.

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 I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you, and I hope we never will 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 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.

อ่านแล้วคิดตามๆ ชอบค่ะมีคนชอบถามว่า ถ้าวันนี้เป็นวันสุดท้ายที่ต้องอยู่ในโลกเราจะทำอะไร มี่ก็ตอบสารพัดสารเพ แต่ก็มีคนตอบว่า แล้วทำไมเราไม่ทำชีวิตให้ทุกวันเหมือนวันสุดท้ายในโลกล่ะ เออ ก็จริง อ่านแล้วก็ได้ย้อนคิดอีกรอบ ชอบอันนี้ค่ะ I would spare an extra minute or two,
To stop and say "I love you," instead of assuming you know I do.
