..like you'll never see me again... (Yes I stole this from Blind Beth)

Lord, I pray that you remind me of this everyday.
Let me live each days as if it's my last...with no regrets...with no sadness...and let the people in my life know just how much I love them.If I had no more timeno more time left to be here,would you cherish what we havewas it everything thatyou were lookin for?

If I couldn't feel your touch
And no longer were you with me
I'd be wishin you were here
To be everything that I been lookin for

I don't want to forget the present is a gift
and I don't wanna take for granted
The time you may have here with me
Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
And every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you'll never see me again

And every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you'll love me
Love me like you'll never see me again.

How many really know what love is?
Now you never will
Do you know until you lose it
That it's everything that we've were lookin for

When I wake up in the morning
You're beside me
I'm so thankful that I found
Everything that I been lookin for

I don't want to forget the present is a gift
And I don't wanna take for granted
the time you may have here with me
Cuz Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
And every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you'll never see me again

And every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you'll love me
Love me like you'll never see me again.

Sheepish smile...I try to do this...every day but, always good to have a reminder...

Living each day as though it is your last is hard to do, isn't it? But telling those you love that you love them - that's easy!

I love that song, and can't help but cry every time I hear it....and I play it alot! I like to torture myself like that sometimes....it just says everything you want to say to someone, but so much better than I ever could!
