Our Last Day
Looking at your picture
I miss the way you smile
I wish I could hear you laugh
It’s really been a while
I’d love to hug you once again
To hold you close to me
To tell you again how much you are loved
To hear you say you love me.
I’d give anything, ANYTHING
To hear that “knock knock” line
And every time you tell that joke
I’ll laugh like it’s the first time
I’ll never again get tired
Of holding you on my lap
And I’ll try to understand
When you’re “too big for a nap”
You don’t want green beans for dinner?
Let’s have mac and cheese instead!
And I promise I’ll always remember a story
When it’s time to tuck you into bed
We will always have dishes, laundry and homework
But I promise to make time to play
I will never again take for granted that we will always be together
From now on, we’re gonna live like today is our last day.
