If I didn't have tomorrow
I hope I am always here-but in case I am not- I want them to remember I was.
If you do not know what really matters, maybe it's time to figure it out?
If I could no longer wake up
To the sun shining on my face
It doesn’t take me a life time
To know what I would miss.
It wouldn’t be; Late nights at the office
Or dinner with my friends
Or climbing the corporate latter-
And hoping Ill fit in.
If I didn’t wake tomorrow
What I fear the most
Is leaving my children in a world
That can be frightening and cold.
I'm scared that they won’t remember
Or ever really know
Who their mother was
And they were her whole entire world.
A tear falls from my eyes
When I sit back and think
How amazing they will someday be
Even without me
She will be beautiful and strong
And follow what’s in her heart.
He will be gentle and kind
And bring new meaning to what it is to be smart
I pray that they will know
What is right and what is wrong
And when integrity is on the line
They won’t put theirs in jeopardy
I hope people who knew me will tell them stories
But leave the bad parts out
Focus on the way I love them
And because of them-I was never made to do without
I hope that they will know
That they made me whole
And when I thought that I would fall apart
Their smiles gave a new story to be told
Never in my life
Could I have wished for anything more
Than to be apart of who they are
They are everything in life I adore.
There will never be enough pictures taken
Or enough words that can be sung
For me to be satisfied that they will always know
Who I was.
So while I am still breathing
I make a packed with myself
That as long as I am on this earth
They are what matters and everything my life is about
Others will have to wait
I do apologize
But sometimes you have to take a moment
To stare at stars and sing lullabies.
